Wildhack Announces Coaching Change for Syracuse Football

Syracuse University Director of Athletics John Wildhack has announced Dino Babers will conclude his tenure as head coach of the football program effective immediately. Coach Nunzio Campanile will coach against Wake Forest next week. A national search to identify Babers’ successor is now underway.

“I appreciate everything Dino, his wife, Susan, and their family have done over the last eight years for Syracuse Athletics, Syracuse University and most importantly, our student-athletes. Thanks to Dino’s leadership, our student-athletes have performed at the highest levels in the classroom, have dedicated countless hours to supporting our communities and have gone on to achieve great success, both professionally and personally. As we embark on a change in leadership at the helm of Syracuse Football, on behalf of Syracuse University I thank Coach Babers for his leadership, character and dedication, and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
