For those of you Boston College Eagles fans who were looking forward to former wideout and current tight end Dan Crimmins playing a key role in the passing attack in the 2015 season, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news.
According to Chris Moore of ACCSports.com, Crimmins is no longer on the team and will not be back next season. No reasons were given for his departure.
It’s certainly a blow for the Eagles, as the New Jersey native brought great size to the passing attack at 6’5″, 235 pounds and was second on the team with 25 receptions and 305 yards last year. In his entire BC career, Crimmins caught 35 passes for 366 yards and averaged 10.5 yards per reception.
Now, run-happy Boston College will turn to 5’6″ Sherman Alston to be its top receiver. He caught 16 passes for 175 yards and two scores in 2014. Needless to say, things just got a bit complicated for head coach Steve Addazio and likely starting quarterback Darius Wade.
This story is still very much in the early stages, but Campus Sports will update it as more details on Crimmins’ departure become available.
Following a season in which it went 7-6 (4-4 ACC), BC opens the 2015 season in Chestnut Hill against Maine on September 5.
