If Jagodzinski leaves, current assistants Frank Spaziani and Jack Bicknell Jr. loom as possible replacements. Spaziani has been a BC assistant for 12 years, the last 10 as defensive coordinator. Bicknell is the assistant head coach and son of former BC coach Jack Bicknell.
"I want a coach who wants to be at BC for a long time," DeFilippo said Monday.
Sitting in his office late Tuesday afternoon, a relaxed DeFilippo said he last spoke with Jagodzinski on Sunday.
"Sometimes two people who really, really like each other can disagree on an issue. That's OK. Nothing wrong with that," DeFilippo said. "I really like Jags a lot and I've enjoyed working with him here for two years and he did a wonderful job here.
"So we're going to sit down, hopefully, and talk and we'll see where we come out."
Jagodzinski took the BC job in 2007 after Tom O'Brien left for North Carolina State. He led the Eagles to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game in his two seasons, losing both times to Virginia Tech.
BC finished this season with a 9-5 record after a 16-14 loss to Vanderbilt in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 31, ending an eight-game bowl winning streak for the Eagles. They were 11-3 in Jagodzinski's first season.
