The Coach Jag Firing

I'm still in Washington DC with the issue of genocide occupying my days, but I wanted to comment very quickly on the bizarre Jeff Jagodzinsky firing at Boston College. Apparently a huge part of the issue comes down to BC Athletic Director Gene DiFilippo's sense of betrayal. In many ways this reminds me of the sense of betrayal that pervaded the dissoution of Bill Belichick and Eric Mangini's relationship when Mangini took the Jets coaching job. But isn't there some irony attached to Boston College reacting to Coach Jag's potential breach of contract by breaking their contract with him by firing him?

I think it was in his contract that if he interviews for an NFL job, BC has the right to fire him.

Agreed. I believe it was the contract's "Jagoff Clause."

No?

I wonder how many kids have de-committed since all this nonsense...

They made the right pick in choosing his successor from within, so hopefully not too much damage done. Still, not the way you want to be a national story . . .
