Joe Jones Leaves Boston College, Takes Head Coaching Job At Boston University

Joe Jones, an associate head coach at Boston College, has left his position with the Eagles and has been hired as the next head coach of the Boston University Terriers men's basketball team on Wednesday night.

Sources told CBSSports.com that Jones was informed of the news on Tuesday. The other finalist was BU assistant Brian Daly, who spent the last two years on Pat Chambers' staff. (Jeff Goodman, CBS Sports)

Jones served as the head coach at Columbia for seven seasons before leaving to become an associate under Steve Donahue at Boston College. Jones is replacing Pat Chambers, who left after two seasons as the BU head coach and was hired for the same position at Penn State.

BC Interruption, out Boston College blog, reacts to the news and wonders if it will be the start of a new rivalry between BC and BU.

Congratulations to Jones, this job makes a lot of sense for him. BU had a successful year in 2010-11 winning the America East Conference, before getting their doors blown off by Kansas in the tournament. Will this hire reignite a long dormant rivalry between BC-BU? BC and BU have only played twice since 1980 with BC winning both, including a BC win against the Terriers in the 1980 NIT.
