Syracuse football staff changes begin, with 2 assistant coaches missing


Syracuse, NY – Syracuse football coach Dino Babers is making changes to his coaching staff in the wake of a 5-7 season.

Tight Ends Coach Reno Ferri is out, according to a source, and defensive line coach Vince Reynolds has also been sacked, according to a Yahoo Sports report.

They are two of Babers’ oldest staff assistants. Both have been with Babers since his first season in 2016.

Staff changes quiet speculation Babers will be the head coach after completing his sixth season with the school following Saturday night’s 31-14 loss to No.17 Pittsburgh.

These are the first major moves of the offseason and they precede Sunday afternoon’s meeting with the players.

Ferri, the tight ends coach, was the program’s primary recruiter in the talent-rich Maryland-DC region. He helped recruit star running back Sean Tucker and linebacker Marlowe Wax from out of the region.

Babers’ tight end-use offense has been a constant source of frustration in the fan base, airing complaints about the position’s lack of receiving targets.

Reynolds oversaw a loaded senior defense line that graduated its top four contributors to this year’s squad. Syracuse is tied for 16th nationally in sacks with 37, led by defensive end Cody Roscoe 8.5.
