It will be interesting to see who Syracuse hires to replace Marrone. Names mentioned in our search will pop up. I don't think Syracuse has the money for Mullen, but I could see Roman there. Despite the chance they might pick a great coach, I am not sad to see Syracuse lose Marrone. He was solid and had them headed in the right direction.
Marrone's slow but subtle success is the best takeaway from all of this. Syracuse's low point was worse than ours, yet solid coaching and recruiting returned them to respectability. If Addazio cannot mirror that same sort of recovery at the Heights, we hired the wrong guy.
