A look at BC's decision to fire head coach Al Skinner.
I'm here to announce that coach Al Skinner and I. Met twice last week. And on Wednesday. The 24 of march. It was agreed it was mutually beneficial for us to part ways. Al Skinner is no longer than men's head basketball coach at Boston College the decision made last Wednesday that kept quiet until today so Skinner could pursue other opportunities. He's like saint John's job. Him before last week. Skinner spent thirteen years at Boston College winning 247. Games -- in any other coach. At the school. Hi everybody and -- -- -- Chris Skinner led the Eagles the NCAA tournament seven times but it you look at his more recent body of work. Eagles struggled lately hey they're Criss cross college sports even and Boston. Division one level is big business and when the numbers certainly not there in the win column. Well that always directly affect reflects on the bank account when that happens down comes the acts and that's what happened today over at the right decision was made last Wednesday -- don't just that the Boston College Eagles parting ways with the men's basketball coach Bennett requested got 40005. Another job. Born in our start in six -- -- have -- not -- good job of that period finally Boston College sports to make the announcement as. Deep snow started to leak out to -- -- let go thirteen years as BC right spots get ahead definitely. Recruiter which -- -- the quality of the teams I've disappointing. Sub 500 season this past years may have sealed his fate despite having. Three years remaining on his coming contract. What are the numbers somewhat impressed that you can totally spin it that way but also I think if you talk to the BC fan base they'll be. Not exactly disappointed that -- has been let go two point 7165. Lot of wins but just never got the Eagles to the next level. Maybe the tournament seven times but again it's all about getting past the sweet sixteen and maybe competing for a national title -- I was never able to do so he has done. When Boston. We have great great respect for out. He has done a terrific job here in thirteen years and and we've had a lot of great wins and a lot of great seasons and we thought that that was the least we can do for him was over those six days that's our goal now. Is to find a coach who shares our vision. Of Boston College basketball. Now we'll begin this search immediately. And I want you to know that this is a very very good job.
