BC special-teams coach moving on

Boston College special-teams coach Mike Dawson will leave the football staff effective Jan. 1 to pursue opportunities outside of football, the school announced.

“Mike Dawson has been a valuable member of our staff for the past three seasons,” coach Frank Spaziani said in a prepared statement. “We wish him nothing but the best as he heads down a new career path. I’m certain he will be a success wherever his career path leads him.”

Spaziani said he would make further announcements about his staff in the near future.
