BC needs to make splash with hire

Walter McCarty, Jamion Christian, or even Al Skinner should be considered

Time’s a wastin’ at the Heights, as Boston College is one of the few Division 1 programs still without a basketball coach. Athletic director Brad Bates is likely headed for North Texas to the Final Four to potentially field interest from additional candidates about the vacant position.
