A few weeks after Martin Jarmond left the school for UCLA, Boston College has found its new athletic director.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Pete Thamel, Temple athletic director Pat Kraft has agreed to become the new athletic director at the school.

[UPDATE 11:15 a.m.]: The school has made the move official.

It is a five-year contract.

Kraft has an extensive background in football as he was able to help turn Temple's program around and the hope is he will be able to do the same at BC along with first-year coach Jeff Hafley, who came over from Ohio State. Kraft also played football at Indiana and was very close with Matt Rhule, the current Carolina Panthers head coach, when he was at Temple.

He had been the AD at Temple since 2015.

Boston College's football program hasn't won more than seven games since 2009.
