Report: Mike Sullivan on BC's radar
By Pat Yasinskas
We’ve known that New Orleans assistants Aaron Kromer and Pete Carmichael were on the radar for the head-coaching job at Boston College. But, apparently, they aren’t the only NFC South coaches being linked to the job.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter just reported that Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan has expressed an interest in the Boston College job.
If Sullivan were to land the Boston College job, it would be a big blow to the Buccaneers. In his first season as Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator, Sullivan has revived quarterback Josh Freeman’s career and given the Bucs the most entertaining offense in franchise history.
In addition to what he’s done on the field with the Bucs, Sullivan could have one other edge in getting the Boston College job. Sullivan previously was an assistant to New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin, who is a former Boston College coach with deep ties to the school.
