Interview with Jets could cost Jagz his job

Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski will be fired if he interviews with the Jets on Monday, and guess what? Jagodzinski doesn't seem to care.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Jagodzinski plans to go through with the interview anyway, and if he is fired, offensive coordinator Steve Logan would be promoted to head coach.

Wow.

A few things quickly come to mind on this. One, how could Jagodzinski possibly win his team back if he outright chooses an opportunity -- not even a guaranteed job -- over them? I guess he wouldn't have to if he got fired, but clearly setting this up behind the scenes shows little loyalty to the program.

And two, why not choose defensive coordinator Frank Spaziani as the next head coach? Don't get me wrong, I have the utmost respect for Steve Logan and I think he did a tremendous job this season with what he had to work with. He also has head coaching experience from his days at East Carolina. But Spaziani is the most tenured member of that staff at BC, as he just finished his 12th season there. He is head coach material, his defenses have been outstanding, and he deserves a shot.

Jagodzinski has an NFL mentality and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he made this move. The interview is scheduled for Monday, so we should know soon enough if there will be changes in Chestnut Hill.
