According to a report from Adam Baliatico of the Eagle Insider on 247Sports, two Michigan assistant coaches are candidates to become the next head coach at Boston College.

Baliatico is reporting that Wolverines defensive coordinator Don Brown and assistant Anthony Campanile are both in the running to replace Steve Addazio, who was fired on Sunday.

From 247 Sports:

Brown, a Massachusetts native, explored head coaching options last year as he interviewed for the Temple head coaching job. The 64-year old has consistently produced top defenses at Michigan, but has struggled mightily the last two seasons against Ohio State, yielding over 100 points in two blowout losses to the Buckeyes. Eagle Insider laid out the case for Brown the other day:

Don Brown is one of, if not, the most recognizable coaches in the state of Massachusetts, as a native of the state and a coach who has either recruited the region or coached in the region since 1983. Brown has served as a head coach 3 times previously, although never at the division 1 FBS level and has won everywhere he went, compiling a 95-45 record over 12 seasons as a head coach. As a defensive coordinator, Brown is one of the best in the country, having guided Boston College to the nation’s best defense prior to heading to Michigan, where he has coached elite defenses year after year. Despite being older in age, Brown is still one of the best recruiters in the country due to his deep connections, historical ability to produce NFL players, and likeable personality. Brown’s only drawback as a head coaching candidate is his age, at 64 years old, although many coaches his age have had success.

Campanile, meanwhile, is looking like a hot name in a couple of circles. He has been tied to the Boston College job as a former assistant with the Eagles, but is also reportedly being considered for a defensive coordinator position at Rutgers, where he both played and coached in the past. Campanile’s brother Nunzio was the interim head coach for the Scarlet Knights after the firing of Chris Ash mid-season. Nunzio is considered a strong candidate to stay on Greg Schiano’s staff in some capacity.
