With a big recruiting weekend coming up, new Boston College football coach Frank Spaziani took his first steps of the new regime today by shuffling and solidifying his staff.

The biggest change came, as expected, on the offensive side, where offensive coordinator Steve Logan is gone. BC put out a release this afternoon announcing h is resignation.

“Steve has done an outstanding job as our offensive coordinator the past two seasons,” Spaziani said in a statement.. “The BC football family is appreciative of his efforts and wishes him well."
Later, as he prepared for a recruiting weekend, which will include visiting recruits tomorrow and hitting the road on Sunday for a week of recruiting, Spaziani said that the completion of his staff was still "ongoing.''

Since Logan came to BC along with Jeff Jagodzinski, who was fired last week and replaced by Spaziani on Tuesday, the move was not totally a surprise. Logan was brought to BC as support for Jagodzinski, who was serving as a head coach for the first time, as is Spaziani.

Allthough Spaziani has no further announcements about his coaching staff at this time,wide receivers coach Ryan Day appears a likely candidate to replace Logan. Another possibility could be Jack Bicknell Jr., who currently has the title of assistant head coach and offensive line coach. But Bicknell may also bolt as well and return to the head coaching level at the University of Massachusetts, which according to sources close to the UMass and BC programs, is scheduled to meet with Bicknell this weekend.

Defensively, the biggest shift could be the elevation of linebackers coach Billy McGovern to defensive coordinator.
