Orange Smoke at AFCA

With all of the coaches in America mixing and mingling in Orlando, expect news regarding the vacancies that SU still has to fill.

The bowl season is officially over (Syracuse’s season ended just a tad earlier than that), so we’ve hit a transition period in recruiting. Coaches can begin hosting prospects on campus again this Friday, and begin visiting them at home on the 17th.

This all coincides with the American Football Coaches Association Convention taking place in Orlando where SU just may be looking to fill two vacancies on its coaching staff. With all of the coaches in America mixing and mingling in Orlando, expect news regarding the vacancies that SU still has to fill (wide receivers/ offensive coordinator).

Check out the schedule for the AFCA convention, which has a “Syracuse University Staff Meeting Private Function” on Monday morning from 9-11a. In an convention itinerary which also includes a presentation on NAIA ticket sales, the time and place is certainly interesting.

One would assume the Orange power brokers will be discussing the staff’s open positions with hundreds of coaching candidates teeming throughout the hallways. Where there’s orange smoke…

This is the perfect time for SU to pick an offensive coordinator and propel your recruiting push before the spring game.

The class is already close to max, but there may still be some available bodies.

Plus at AFCA, you can find great tools like the “Coach’s Office 3-D Animation” which looks like a slight upgrade from Madden ’97.

We learned this season that Cincinnati already does this type of prep, with the help of a guy at EA Sports named Rob Moore.

Not the one you’re thinking of, but according to FootballScoop.com, which has been all over the coaching rumors this week, former SU player Rob Moore is in the running for the Syracuse wide receivers coaching job.

Now if he could also beat Marrone in Madden on SEGA Genesis, Moore could really vault his candidacy.
