Former Temple coach Steve Addazio is expected to have some familiar faces with him at Boston College.

According to sources, Temple offensive coordinator Ryan Day, defensive coordinator Chuck Heater, offensive line coach Justin Frye and possibly assistant head coach/quarterback coach Kevin Rogers will join Addazio's staff at BC.

Addazio resigned Tuesday to accept the Eagles' coaching job.

Day didn't attend Wednesday's coaches/players meeting with Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw. He's in New England, according to sources.

Day and Rogers were former assistant coaches at Boston College.
