Boston College is hiring Temple athletic director Patrick Kraft to be its new athletic director. Kraft replaces Martin Jarmond, who left Boston College to become athletic director at UCLA. Kraft has been at Temple since 2013, starting as a deputy AD before being promoted to lead the department in 2015. Under his leadership, Temple football has had one of its longest runs of sustained success, despite changing coaches three times. Kraft, a former Indiana football player, has also been active at the NCAA level as a member of football oversight committee and Division I Strategic Vision and Planning Committee.
