Babers, Wildhack hope ‘arranged marriage’ turns into long-term stability at SU

The two men shouldering the biggest burdens in the effort to rebuild the Syracuse football team try to sit down once a week, usually over lunch.

Meal by meal, football coach Dino Babers and athletic director John Wildhack try to transition a relationship they refer to as an arranged marriage into a long-term partnership that will yield a successful Syracuse football team.

During these meetings they talk business, discussing the football team, the program and what can be done next to improve it. They talk family, an effort to craft a deeper relationship Wildhack hopes will provide Syracuse its long-term coaching solution. Wildhack said he’s constantly impressed by Babers’ depth and intelligence, whether the topic is football or something else.
