Ed Chlebek… that is precisely whose winning percentage that Hafley has in his sites for historic ineptitude.

In some ways, Hafley is like Frank Spaziani. He was a successful defensive coordinator working for a coach who could recruit his ass off. But neither of them are competent enough to be a head coach. Haf should have just stayed a defensive coordinator.

Hafley has been bad and it’s now clear that he has made some pretty big coaching errors. I agree that this is sadly reminiscent of Spaz. I am tired of anyone claiming Hafley is better or even equivalent to Addazio as a coach. Hafley inherited a program consistently winning 6-7 games in the regular season but couldn’t get over the hump under Addazio. Hafley seems to be running the program into the ground similar to what Spaz did. Addazio gets 7 wins easy with this schedule and I’m not sure Hafley even gets 6.

Losing to UConn last year was maybe BC’s worst loss in 10 years.

Yeah, Hafley is Spaziani level. Or close to it. On one hand, we haven't lost a recruit to Northeastern track under Hafley; on the other hand I have yet to hear about Haf picking up the tab for a deli order.
I have to remind myself the Dazzler sucked a lot too. There was 2015 with an ACC-winless season with an 8 game losing streak (though BC beat NIU that year)

Hire JDF


I have a friend who was tight with JDF at JMU. And while I despise his Dad and the havoc he left in his wake at BC, based on the stories he tells of JDF coed interactions at JMU, I think he would fit in at this dumpster fire of a website and has much in common with Duchie—aside from being a dago.

Besides, could it really be any worse? Let’s face it, no one would be completely shocked in Hafley figured out a way to lose to Holy Cross. Is JDF incompetent enough to let that happen? I’m not sure even Spazz could pull that off.

If you are new to this site - not sure anyone actually is - there was a statement one time about our QBs that "No one could be worse than Chris Crane!" and then BC ran out a number of QBs that were in fact, worse that Chris Crane.

The comparison for Hafley is not Spaziani. First of all, Hafley was NOT a successful defensive coordinator. He was a Co - DC at Ohio State for ONE season! How is that a success? What he had was : a) demonstrated recruiting success, 2) long time bright NFL assistant coach, and 3) good personality for the media/alumni. We rolled the dice on a guy without head coaching experience. Didn't work. With the benefit of hindsight, his lack of longer term DC track record was a shortcoming. Being responsible for leading a defense for a longer period, for better or worse, would have taught him a lot about leadership, staff, etc...

Spaziani had none of those three qualifications. Spaz was a promotion from within. More of the same was the goal. Didn't work.

The comp for Hafley has been, for the last two years, DAN HENNING. The program became soft and bereft of discipline on his watch. And he had the long time NFL credentials, but clearly did not know how to lead a college program himself. This is the comp.

Most head coaching hires don't work.

The outcome of a team with no coordination and even less discipline is similar to Henning. However, Henning had much more elite experience than Hafley. Their resumes weren’t remotely the same.

Hafley is just showing why he’ll never be anything but a DB coach.

I know everyone hates ALL head coaching suggestions. Bill O'Brien yada yada, etc.... But this James Madison team that beat Virginia today plays the sport well. That's all I'm saying. If you didn't know the last name, would you really be that opposed?

I don't care who the next coach of BC is, as long as it isn't Hafley. This is ridiculous.

The lack of discipline is so scary similar to Henning. "Players coaches" never seem to work out in College. Wonder if The Gamblor (trademark TRE) was roaming the sidelines to make sure a parlay paid out.

Ahhh... the Good Old Days when we would be so favored against Pitt that a loss to them would set off an investigation. Could see Leahy's career come full circle.

So Marcus Bembry has apparently died. More surprising, he was allowed to graduate from BC.
