Boston College has fired its head coach Jim Christian after seven years as the school’s head coach. During those seven years, he never made the tournament and finished with a 78-132 record including just one year with a record above 500.
The team is just three and thirteen this year and has dealt with some major covid issues this season. Those issues included almost playing a game with just four scholarship players just a short time ago. He seemed to be on the right track when he jumped from seven and nine-win seasons to a 19 win season. He immediately followed up with two seasons a few games under 500 each.

Boston College hasn’t made the NCAA Tournament in 13 years since Al Skinner was the head coach. He was fired one year after a first-round tournament exit during the 2008-2009 season and the program has struggled ever since. The school has only had two seasons above 500 during the Jim Christian and Steve Donahue regimes which lasted a combined 11 seasons.
