After losing several games this season, Scott Shafer has been fired as Syracuse’s head football coach.
That’s according to a report from Sports Illustrated.
A source confirmed the report to syracuse.com and another source has said players are being called into a meeting.
Shafer, who was promoted from defensive coordinator after Doug Marrone’s departure in January 2013, finishes his tenure with a 13-23 mark. The Orange is currently 3-8 this year heading into its season finale against Boston College.
After coaching SU to a 7-6 record and Texas Bowl win in his first season, Shafer struggled through a 3-9 campaign mired in injury.
