Temple’s Patrick Kraft hired as Boston College AD

Boston College hired Temple athletic director Patrick Kraft on Wednesday to fill the same role at the Atlantic Coast Conference school.

Kraft replaces Martin Jarmond, who left BC last month after a short stint to become athletic director at UCLA.

Kraft has been at Temple since 2013, starting as a deputy AD before being promoted to lead the department in 2015. Under his leadership, Temple football has had one of its longest runs of sustained success, despite changing head coaches three times.

Kraft, a former Indiana football player, has also been active at the NCAA level as a member of football oversight committee and Division I Strategic Vision and Planning Committee.
