Jagodzinski brings a lengthy resume that includes being the head coach at Boston College, where he led the Eagles to consecutive appearances in the ACC championship game in 2007 and ‘08.
Matt Ryan, the quarterback who guided the Eagles to that first appearance in 2007, is now the quarterback of the Falcons.
Esteemed colleague D. Orlando Ledbetter snagged a few quotes from Ryan about his former coach:
“I heard he got hired down at Georgia State. I’m excited for him. Obviously, I had a lot of fun with him in my last year at Boston College. I think he’ll do a good job. Obviously, he has a wealth of knowledge on the offensive side of the ball. I think he’ll do a good job.”
“Jags, likes to have a good time. That’s for sure. He likes to keep things loose. I think the guys will enjoy playing for him.”
