MIAMI (AP) -- Luke Kuechly ran an interception back for a touchdown and became Boston College's all-time tackles leader, and the Eagles picked Jacory Harris off four times in his final college game en route to beating Miami 24-17 on Friday.

For Miami, the biggest news wasn't the outcome in the season finale for both teams. It announced during the fourth quarter that coach Al Golden has agreed to a four-year extension through Feb. 1, 2020.

Chase Rettig threw two touchdown passes to Chris Pantale for Boston College (4-8, 3-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). Kuechly also topped his single-season ACC record for tackles, passing the mark of 183 he set last year.

Lamar Miller had a 79-yard touchdown run for Miami (6-6, 3-5), the longest carry by a Hurricane since 2000.

Harris had thrown five interceptions all season entering the day and matched a career-worst with the four on Friday.
