SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Scott Shafer was introduced Friday as the new coach at Syracuse, and he emotionally vowed to continue what Doug Marrone started four years ago.
Marrone, who was named coach of the Buffalo Bills Monday, preached discipline, accountability, character, and integrity, in rejuvenating a team that went 10-37 under his predecessor, Greg Robinson, and transformed it into a two-time bowl winner.
Syracuse finished 2012 at 8-5 after beating West Virginia 38-14 in the Pinstripe Bowl and earned a share of the Big East regular-season title with a 5-2 conference mark, its best since Paul Pasqualoni's 2001 team went 6-1.
Shafer tabbed Chuck Bullough as Syracuse's defensive coordinator but still has to find an offensive coordinator. Nathaniel Hackett left to join Marrone's staff in the same role.
