Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers will take a leave of absence for health reasons, the school announced on Monday.

Rogers, in his first year on Frank Spaziani's staff, will being his leave immediately and be out indefinitely. Tight ends coach Dave Brock will be promoted to acting offensive coordinator and coach the quarterbacks. Rogers' previous stop was quarterbacks coach for the Minnesota Vikings and he assumed those duties as well when he arrived in Chestnut Hill.

"Our football program operates as a family unit, and we are totally supportive of Kevin," Spaziani said in the official release. "I would like to ask our fans and followers to support Kevin and respect his privacy. I have the utmost confidence in Dave Brock, and we will begin the transition immediately."

Boston College's offense has been crippled by injury, with 2010's leading rusher Montel Harris still not available (knee), and 2011's leading receiver Ifeanyi Momah out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in the opener. The unit's inability to put points on the board has them ranked 110th nationally in points scored, and is a point of immediate emphasis heading into the Eages' conference opener against Duke on Saturday.

Boston College OC Rogers taking leave of absence

If they lose to Duke this saturday the whole team may as well take a leave of absence, this team stunk to begin with but its unfortunate that their only two playmakers on offense out out (Harris who may return and Momah who won't).  One thing is clear, this is a team even Notre Dame will be able to handle in the 4th quarter.
