The Boston College women’s soccer program has confronted several surprising developments in the last month.
The Eagles were upset, 4-1, by Hofstra in the NCAA tournament on Nov. 9. Then, head coach Alison Foley, who had just guided BC (14-5-1) to a 22nd successive winning season, “was asked to resign” on Monday, according to a source close to the situation.
The timing of Foley’s departure seemed questionable. BC had advanced to the NCAAs for the 15th time under Foley, finishing fourth in the ACC after a preseason coaches poll had picked the Eagles to finish 10th.
