Jeff Hafley has resigned after four seasons as the head coach at Boston College to become the new defensive coordinator of the Green Bay Packers in the NFL. Hafley went 22-26 overall at BC, with two bowl appearances and a win last month in the Fenway Bowl.
Hafley has considerable NFL coaching experience, having spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2012-13), Cleveland Browns (2014-15), and San Francisco 49ers (2016-18). He returned to the college game in 2019 to be co-DC at Ohio State and then got the Boston College job a year later.
“I loved my four years at Boston College,” Hafley said in a release. “This is an exceptional place to coach given the caliber of student-athletes we recruit, the facilities, and the support from the University and BC fans. I will miss the players who gave so much of themselves these past four years, and my wife Gina and I will certainly miss the BC community and the many friends we have made here.”
Packers’ head coach Matt LaFleur parted ways with former DC Joe Barry last week after three seasons with the team. Green Bay reached the Divisional Round of the 2023 Playoffs, but their defensive unit ranked in the bottom half of the league for the last several years.
