Dino Babers signs long-term contract extension

Head football coach Dino Babers will continue to lead the Orange program for seasons to come.

Babers, a finalist for the 2018 George Munger Collegiate Coach of the Year Award, and Syracuse University have reached an agreement on a contract extension that keeps him at the helm of the program well into the future.

“A little over three years ago, I arrived at Syracuse University inspired by the great opportunity to coach at an institution with such a rich football legacy, hungry student-athletes, good facilities and a storied tradition of academic distinction,” Babers said. “It was a true honor to have accepted the head coach position then and I consider it a privilege today to be able to extend my time coaching at Syracuse. I am grateful to have the support, faith and trust of University leaders, the Orange community, our student-athletes and our fans. I am excited about what the future holds for Syracuse Football and look forward to our continued improvement and growth.”

Under Babers’ leadership, the football program has experienced great success – both on and off the field. In fact, many are calling the 2018 season a breakthrough year for Babers and his team..  Read More
