Mike Reed mentioned as possible Boston College Head Coach target

February 1, 2024

As the news of Jeff Hafley's departure from Boston College to join the Green Bay Packers reverberates through the college football world, attention now turns to who will step into the shoes of the departing head coach. One named mentioned for the position is Clemson's Assistant Head Coach and Cornerbacks Coach, Mike Reed, whose unique blend of experience and ties to Boston College makes him a compelling candidate for the Eagles' top job.

247’s Brandon Marcello had Reed, along with several over coaches, including former Boston College assistant coach Al Golden, as possible replacements for Hafley.

Reed, with a decade-long coaching stint at Clemson, has played a pivotal role in the Tigers' defensive success. Known for his expertise in coaching cornerbacks, Reed has developed a reputation as a skilled and dedicated mentor. His impact on Clemson's secondary has contributed to the team's consistent presence in the upper echelons of college football.

Reed's personal history with Boston College adds an intriguing layer to his name being mentioned. Before making his mark in the coaching realm, Reed donned the maroon and gold as a player for the Eagles in the early 1990s. His firsthand experience with the program brings a unique perspective and an understanding of the values that define Boston College football.

If Reed were to take the helm at Boston College, it would represent a homecoming for the seasoned coach. The prospect of leading a program where he once wore the jersey adds a sentimental touch to the potential move, making it more than just a career progression but a return to roots.

Given Reed's extensive coaching background and his familiarity with the intricacies of both Clemson and Boston College football, he stands as a strong contender to guide the Eagles into their next chapter. The transition from an assistant role at a football powerhouse like Clemson to a head coaching position at Boston College would not only be a testament to Reed's coaching acumen but also a reflection of his commitment to the development of student-athletes on and off the field.
