Charles Callinan waiting for next BC coach

One Boston College commitment will wait at least another week before making any decision on his future.

The Eagles fired Frank Spaziani as coach Sunday, a move expected by many, including three-star receiver Charles Callinan (Jersey City, N.J./St. Peter's Prep).

"I wasn't surprised by the news," he said. "I've been hearing rumors for the past couple of weeks."

The departure of Spaziani does not mean the 6-foot-4 receiver, who also holds offers from Connecticut and Rutgers, will immediately look elsewhere.

"As of right now I'm still committed and waiting to hear who will be appointed the new head coach before I figure anything out," Callinan said.

St. Peter's Prep will play in the semifinals Friday against fellow in-state power Paramus Catholic, and Callinan said he won't revisit his commitment until after his season ends. He is also unsure whether he will take any visits.

"I don't know," he said. "I'm going to wait until my season is over before I think about any of that. I'm focused on my season right now."
