Boston College coach Frank Spaziani has hired former Akron assistant Mike Dawson as special-teams assistant coach, the school announced Monday. The staff is now complete heading into spring football practices.
Dawson, who has 11 years of coaching experience, spent the past three seasons (2006-08) as linebackers coach at the University of Akron.
Including Spaziani, who previously held the post of defensive coordinator before he was hired to replace Jeff Jagodzinski, the Eagles will have new faces in six positions this spring.
Spaziani promoted Bill McGovern to defensive coordinator and named Gary Tranquill offensive coordinator. He named Dave Brock tight ends coach and Sean Devine offensive line coach.
Four assistants who have been with the program for the past two seasons -- defensive line coach Jeff Comissiong, wide receivers coach Ryan Day, running backs coach Ben Sirmans and defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator Mike Siravo -- will return as members of Spaziani's staff.
