Video: Syracuse Carries An Emotional Scott Shafer Off Field After Win In Final Game

Scott Shafer gets carried off the field after final game.


On Monday, Syracuse athletic director Mark Coyle announced that head coach Scott Shafer would not be retained after the season finale, after starting the 2015 season at 3-8 after a 3-9 2014. Shafer stayed on to coach the team's final game of the season against Boston College, and pulled out a victory with a last second Cole Murphy field goal to win 20-17. After the game, Syracuse players picked a very emotional Shafer up, and paraded him around the field.

Shafer did not have the most successful tenure at Syracuse, but he is extremely close with his players. It is good to see him go out on top.
