Colorado State has hired former Boston College head coach Steve Addazio to fill its vacancy.

"Throughout his career, coach Addazio has been committed to the holistic development of student-athletes and of the programs he has led," Colorado State athletic director Joe Parker said in a release. "He has focused on crafting cultures where his students thrive on the field and in the classroom. We look forward to coach Addazio leading our football team as we strive to be the preeminent program in the Mountain West."

Addazio was let go by the Eagles on Dec. 1 after seven seasons. The 60-year-old posted a 44-44 record at Boston College. Though he never won more than seven games in a campaign, he also posted only one losing season.

The Rams are ushering in a new era after parting ways with Mike Bobo following a five-year stint. Colorado State has gone 7-17 over the last two years.
