Women’s ice hockey coach Katie King arrived at Boston College in 2003 after an illustrious career as a player—at Brown University, on three medal-winning U.S. Olympic teams, and on the Women’s National Team. As head coach at Boston College, King has led the team to a Beanpot championship, a berth in the NCAA tournament, and the Hockey East championship game.
Football coach Frank Spaziani took over the head coaching position in 2009 after 10 years as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator and two as running backs coach. In 2007 his defense ranked second in the nation; the 2008 Eagles defense was in the top 10 nationally in seven categories. In Spaziani’s first season as head coach, the team was 8-5, finishing the season with an invitation to the Emerald Bowl, where they lost to USC.

Before coming the Boston College, Fiske was assistant coach at his alma mater Fordham University, where he was an oarsman.
