Boston College has extended the contract of head football coach Steve Addazio through 2020, the school announced Thursday. The Eagles have gone 14-11 in Addazio’s first two seasons at the helm after going 2-10 the season before he arrived.
Addazio’s name recently surfaced in connection with both the Florida and Michigan coaching searches.
“In just two years, Steve Addazio has done an amazing job with our football program,” said BC athletic director Brad Bates. “To lead a team to 14 wins and two consecutive bowl games during what was supposed to be a rebuilding process is a great accomplishment.
“Beyond winning, he has worked...
First-year referee Brad Allen will work as the referee for Sunday’s Patriots-Jets game at MetLife, according to FootballZebras.com.
This will mark Allen’s second New England game of the season — he was the official for the Oct. 23 game between the Patriots and Bears. Allen, who was one of three new hires this offseason, worked as a referee in the ACC for the past nine years, and has also worked as the head official for the 2012 Rose Bowl and the 2014 Sugar Bowl.
Here’s a look at who has worked as the lead official for each New England game this year, and the corresponding penalties for each game, not counting the flags that were offset or declined.
Sept. 7 at Miami: Walt Anderson — 9 penalties, 100 yards (Dolphins — 4 penalties, 26 yards) Sept. 14 at Minnesota: Tony Corrente — 15 penalties, 163...
FOXBORO — With the debate around Darrelle Revis and Rob Gronkowski as potential MVP candidates, this afternoon in the Patriots locker room, we decided to ask each player about the other one and what they bring to the field.
“He’s a great player,” Gronkowski said of Revis. “He’s just so great with ball skills and he’s just so relaxed out there. You don’t even think he’s trying — that’s how good he is. When you see a player like that, you’re like, ‘Man, is he trying?’ He’s just right at the ball every time. That just means he’s got a lot of skills and he’s quick on his feet. The day he can react to a ball is unbelievable. He’s a great corner. It’s great to have him on our team.”
“The same stuff you see in the game, he’s doing at practice,...
NBC Sports NHL analyst Pierre McGuire made his weekly appearance Thursday on Middays with MFB following Wednesday’s Wild-Bruins game and to talk about some recent trade rumors surrounding the Bruins. To hear the interview, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
One of those names rumored of late has been Blues right wing T.J. Oshie. During the first intermission on the NBC Sports broadcast last night Bob McKenzie mentioned Oshie being available. McGuire hadn’t heard such things, but said it would be a good fit for the Bruins if he was indeed made available.
“I did not know that he was available because I think that he is a very respected member of the St. Louis Blues organization,” said...
All Patriots players were in attendance at the start of practice Thursday afternoon at Gillette Stadium, according to multiple reports. The team is preparing for Sunday’s game against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.
This comes a day after Julian Edelman had a concussion added to his name on the injury report Wednesday. Given he played in the final minutes of Sunday’s win and spoke postgame, there was a thought the injury occurred in Wednesday’s practice. Having him present at the start of practice on Thursday is a good sign for his availability Sunday.
