Fans learned Florida State's 2024 football schedule a week ago from today. There were a few roadblocks that gave some individuals concern.
One such contest was playing the Boston College Eagles on Monday, September 2nd in the friendly confines of Doak Campbell Stadium. Florida State nearly escaped an utter disaster last season in Chestnut Hill as the Seminoles defeated the Eagles by a score of 31-29.
Quarterback Thomas Castellanos had a memorable performance where he completed 20 of his 33 passes for 305 yards and 1 touchdown and he also had 16 carries for 95 yards and 1 touchdown on the ground.
Florida State previously recruited Castellanos as a running back in the recruiting process. However, the Georgia native showcased his ability to be an effective signal caller. He nearly led a Boston College comeback after they were down by a score of 31-10 late in the third quarter.
However, Seminole fans might be breathing a huge sigh of relief as it was reported on Wednesday night that Boston College head football coach Jeff Hafley will be taking the defensive coordinator position with the Green Bay Packers. This makes sense for Hafley considering that he has spent the majority of his coaching career in the NFL. Plus, he was recently on the hot seat with the Eagles last season.
This is ChopChat, so why are we discussing the Boston College head football coach? This could potentially have a direct correlation for a Florida State assistant coach. For reference, defensive coordinator Adam Fuller's hometown is Tewksbury, Massachusetts.
While I am suggesting that Fuller will take the head coaching position, I will state that it is worth noting due to him being from Massachusetts. Plus, Fuller will be heading into his fourth season as the defensive coordinator with Florida State and recently signed a 3-year contract extension to stay in Tallahassee.
Regardless of who gets the Boston College head football coaching position, I believe that Mike Norvell and his coaching staff will be prepared to have a memorable 2024 season.
