Scott Shafer Officially Named New Head Coach Of The Orange

Syracuse University finally announced the official promotion of Scott Shafer to the head coach position of the Syracuse Orange. Here is the tweet that Syracuse Athletics sent out: 

“I look forward to representing the hard-nosed city of Syracuse and the great state of New York as the head coach of Syracuse University,” Coach Shafer said in the SU Athletics release.

“I can’t think of a coach in America who is more deserving of having an opportunity to be a head coach,” said Syracuse Director of Athletics Dr. Daryl Gross in the same SU Athletics release. 

It is nice to see them officially announce the promotion, and hopefully for SU’s sake it helps recruits stick around. It is at least a step in the right direction.
