Yesterday, I waxed a little nostalgic about Jack Bicknell's departure from the football team in 1990 and even hazarded a guess that Tom O'Brien would be there for a while.
Well, this bomb dropped:
Amid swirling rumors yesterday Tom O'Brien was asked to clear out his desk and vacate his third-floor corner office at the Yawkey Athletic Center, Boston College's stunned football team found itself in a state of limbo after learning of O'Brien's imminent departure to North Carolina State.
Unlike my experience of the players being the first to know about Cowboy Jack's departure, apparently the team members were among the last to know about Tom O'Brien.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled Theatrical Broadcast.
