Boston College Womens' basketball team just suffered through an abysmal 7-23 [2-14 ACC] season losing many games by 10 points or more. Head coach Sylvia Crawley, had to go, and it appears a players revolt ultimately cost her a job. The players reportedly went to the Athletic Director and said, "Either she goes or we go" [Sounds similar to a former DU lax coach's exit from Asbury Avenue].
Erik Johnson, who led DU the past four seasons, coached the Pioneers to consecutive 19-win seasons the past two, was named to replace Crawley at Boston College.
"This is a huge dream of mine, to return to Boston College. It really tugs at the heartstrings" Johnson told the Denver Post.
Johnson leaves DU a 72-52 record, including a 44-23 in the Sun Belt Conference, to help rebuild the Boston College program.
