Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich received the final paperwork from the National Football League yesterday with information projecting him as a second-round pick in April's draft.
"They said somewhere early in the second round,'' said Herzlich by phone from his home in Pennsylvania early this afternoon. "So I'm coming back to BC for my senior year.''
Herzlich said that the firing of BC coach Jeff Jagodzinski Wednesday surprised him, but it did not have an impact on his decision to return.
"But I think they should make Spaz [defensive coordinator Frank Spaziani] the coach,'' said Herzlich. "That would be great. That would make things a lot easier for all of us I think.''
