Boston College adds two coaches

Boston College announced Tuesday that it has hired Todd Fitch to coach receivers and retained assistant Al Washington, who will now coach the running backs.

Fitch spent the last three seasons as offensive coordinator at USF. Before that, Fitch spent three seasons as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at East Carolina.

“Todd is a guy I’ve known a long time,” coach Steve Addazio said in a statement. “He’s been a coordinator at USF, he’s been a coordinator at East Carolina. He’s been a wide receivers coach, quarterbacks coach at South Carolina. He’s been at Iowa State with Dan McCarney. He has coached with and worked with guys that I am very good friends with. He’s got a tremendous depth of knowledge in the throw game. He’s been involved in a lot of similar philosophies that I’ve been involved with. We both have a broad-based background. He’ll be tremendous addition to our offensive staff and have a great emphasis on the throw game with Ryan [Day].”

Washington worked as assistant special teams coach and assistant defensive line coach at Boston College in 2012. He came to Boston College after serving as linebackers coach at Elon University in 2011.

“I think Al is a tremendous guy with a lot of passion for Boston College,” Addazio said. “I think he’s got a lot of energy. He came here. He played here. He's had the BC experience. He gets it here. I’m hiring him to coach the running backs.”
