Sources: Spiders extend Mooney

Richmond coach Chris Mooney is now officially out of the running for the Boston College job.

Mooney, who met with BC athletic director Gene DeFillipo earlier this week according to multiple sources, would not comment on withdrawing from the Eagles' open position but did confirm to Friday night that he had signed a seven-year extension with the Spiders.

The other candidates to replace Al Skinner are former BC assistants Ed Cooley (Fairfield), who already interviewed, Bill Coen (Northeastern) and Cornell coach Steve Donahue.

Donahue has also interviewed, while Coen will talk to DeFillipo on Monday.
