Gene DeFilippo’s Retirement Sparks Calls For Boston College And UConn To Bury The Hatchet (BC Interruption)

With Boston College A.D. Gene DeFilippo set to retire on September 30, the speculation has already begun on many aspects of the Eagles’ athletic future: Will Spaziani be fired at the end of the season?

Terps’ Devin Burns Settling in at New Position: Third-String Quarterback (Washington Post)
