Boston College announced offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers will be taking some time off due to his health.
Monday, Boston College Eagles athletic director Gene DeFilippo announced offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers will take a leave of absence, with tight ends coach Dave Brock taking over for the time being. Rogers' health is cited as the cause. DeFilippo followed up the news by requesting fans respect Rogers' privacy.
BC hired Rogers this offseason away from the Minnesota Vikings, where he'd served as quarterbacks coach. He'd previously coached with the Virginia Tech Hokies, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Syracuse Orange and Navy Midshipmen.
Rogers has been a coach for 36 years and has three children. There's, of course, no word on the specifics of his condition.
New OC Brock has coordinated the offenses of the Kansas St. Wildcats and Temple Owls at points during his 20-year coaching career. Graduate assistant Ben Johnson will take over as tight ends coach.
