BC hires former Ohio U coach Jim Christian

BOSTON (AP) Boston College is turning to another small conference coach to make the Eagles competitive in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

BC hired Jim Christian of Ohio University on Thursday, hoping the coach who has led his teams to eight postseason berths in 12 years can get the Eagles back into the NCAA tournament. BC went 4-14 in the ACC last year - the third straight year it was under .500 in the conference - and the Eagles have not made the NCAAs since 2009.

"Any coach wants to have his chance to compete against the very best. The ACC is the very best," Christian said Thursday in a conference call. "There's no doubt for what I'm looking for, this is just a tremendous fit. ... The opportunity for growth - that's what excites you."
