Boston College fires head football coach Steve Addazio

Boston College is moving on from its head football coach Steve Addazio.

BC fired Addazio on Sunday, according to Yahoo Sports. Addazio spent the last seven seasons with the Eagles, fishing his tenure in Chestnut Hill with a 44-44 record.

Boston College ended its 2019 campaign 6-6, but was able to earn a 26-19 road win over Pittsburgh on Saturday. According to Yahoo, "BC brass made the move in the hopes of finding someone who can make the Eagles more competitive in the ACC."

Wide receivers coach Rich Gunnell reportedly will replace Addazio in the interim.

Addazio had signed a two-year contract extension with BC after last season.

Report: Boston College close to hiring Ohio State DC Jeff Hafley as head coach

Boston College reportedly is close to hiring its new head football coach.

After parting ways with Steve Addazio earlier this month, the Eagles are close to replacing him with Ohio State defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley, according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports.

Hafley helped the Buckeyes finish No. 2 nationally in total defense this season. Prior to joining Ohio State in 2019, Hafley served as a defensive backs coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers.

The move particularly makes sense for BC as it finished the 2019 campaign No. 125 of 130 in total defense. Hafley also has built a reputation over the years as one of the top recruiters in the country.

The formal announcement of Hafley's hiring is expected to be made soon.

Army vs. Navy live stream: Watch Armed Forces football game online

There's only one Division I college football game on the schedule this weekend, but it's a great one.

Army will battle Navy at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday in the 119th installment of a matchup that dates to 1890.

The Midshipmen have dominated the service acadamies' rivalry for much of the 21st century, but the Cadets recently flipped the script, beating Navy in 2016 and 2017 after losing 14 straight.

Army is favored again this season, entering with a 9-2 record with losses to Duke and Oklahoma (in overtime). The Midshipmen are 3-9 and en route to their first losing season since 2011.

There won't be many NFL prospects in this game, but at least one NFL head coach will be paying close attention. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, whose father was a coach and scout at Navy, is an avid Navy supporter and spoke at length about the rivalry Friday.

Belichick's long-snapper, Joe Cardona, also attended Navy and will be pulling for a Midshipmen upset.

Here's how and when to watch Army vs. Navy online.

When: Saturday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. ET
TV Channel: CBS
Live Stream: CBS Sports
