Ryan Day is heading back to Chestnut Hill, according to a source of EagleAction.com. Day, who previously served as an assistant coach for the Boston College Eagles football team, will serve as the team's offensive coordinator under newly hired head coach Steve Addazio.
Day spent five seasons as a wide receivers coach at Boston College, during which time wideout Rich Gunnell set the record for most career receiving yards by an Eagles player with 2,459. Day left the school and would accept a position at Temple in 2012 as the program's offensive coordinator.
Under the guidance of Day's offensive game plan , Temple was 4-7 this past season -- sixth place in the Big East -- and had a passing attack ranked 120th in the country (120.8 YPG) and the offense was ranked 88th in scoring (24.7 PPG).
Day's hiring is not yet official, but he could be introduced along with Addazio in the scheduled introductory press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
