Bowling Green hires Boston College OC Loeffler as head coach


BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Bowling Green has hired Boston College offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler as its new head coach.

Loeffler, 44, has done recent stints as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Temple, Auburn and Virginia Tech. The former Michigan quarterback was the Wolverines’ quarterback coach from 2002-07, working with Tom Brady and Chad Henne among others.

He spent the last three seasons at BC where the Eagles have won seven games each of the last three years. His teams have played in bowl games 15 of 16 seasons.

Bowling Green is coming off a 3-9 season in which it fired coach Mike Jinks after seven games. The Eagles are 9-27 since winning the Mid-American Conference twice in three seasons from 2013-15 under head coaches Dave Clawson (2013) and Dino Babers (2015).
