BOSTON COLLEGE: The school hired Bill O’Brien to be its new head coach, luring the former Houston Texans boss back to his hometown and away from a job as an assistant on the Ohio State staff he had accepted just last month.

O’Brien replaces Jeff Hafley, who left Chestnut Hill to be the defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers – a move that set off a chain of events that rippled from Boston to Los Angeles, and from the NFL to the Big Ten. The decision was first reported by New England Football Journal.

O’Brien, who was the New England offensive coordinator last season, accepted a job on Jan. 19 as the Ohio State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach after the Patriots fired Bill Belichick. The Buckeyes then hired UCLA coach Chip Kelly to replace O’Brien, leaving an opening in Westwood as the Bruins prepare to move to the Big Ten.

The Eagles were 22-26 in four seasons under Hafley, who had been the Buckeyes defensive coordinator when he was hired at BC during the 2019-20 College Football Playoffs.

FURMAN: Defensive tackle Bryce Stanfield died, two days after collapsing during a workout at the school’s football stadium.

Furman President Elizabeth Davis said in a letter to the university community that the 21-year-old Stanfield died while “surrounded by his family and his Furman family.” Davis said Stanfield had collapsed at a Wednesday morning workout and was taken to a hospital and placed on life support. No other details were released.
