The search continues for Rutgers' new defensive coordinator, and today we're taking a look at Frank Spaziani. Spaz has Jersey roots, as he hails from Clark. He was a two-way player at Penn State from 1965 to 1968, but was mostly noted for his play on defense as a linebacker and defensive end. He might be most famous for tanking the Boston College program, but he actually fielded formidable defenses for the Eagles. He spent 15 years coaching for Boston College, starting in 1997 as the running backs coach.
- Defensive coordinator from 1998-2008.
- From 2007-2010, Boston College never finished below 26th in total defense, finishing 5th overall in 2008 and 13th overall in 2010.
- Never finished worse than fourth in conference in total defense.
- Coached star players Mark Herzlich, Mathias Kiwanuka, Jamie Silva, and Luke Kuechly.
