The Syracuse University Orange, currently coached by CoachAnson, are a college football team in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Orange play in the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York, and are a member of the Atlantic Division of the ACC.

History

Breakwood era (2013)

The Syracuse Orange were one of the original members of the ACC for the inaugural season of CFBHC. Led by Breakwood, the Orange started the season 0-4, playing four straight ranked opponents during non-conference play. They responded by winning 6 of their last 8 games to make it to the Hyundai Sun Bowl. There, they fell to the Washington Huskies to finish 6-7. Breakwood left Syracuse following the season.

GreyAliens era (2014)

Grey Aliens took over for Breakwood prior to the 2014 season. Syracuse once again faced a brutal first half of the season, however this time they couldn't turn it around. They lost eight straight to open the season, five to ranked opponents, and finished the season 2-10. GreyAliens was let go after the last game.

First N/A era (2015-2016)

After the firing of GreyAliens, the Syracuse football program floundered for a while. Unable to find a head coach, the coordinators from the previous staff led the team through the 2015 season. A resilient squad managed a 6-6 record, appearing in the Advocare Texas Bowl, where they lost to LSU. Entering the 2016 season, the cloud of uncertainty still lingered, but after an opening loss, a new head coach was hired.

infinitempg era (2016)

One game into the 2016 season, infinitempg was brought in. During his tenure, the Orange struggled mightily, losing seven out of eight games. Seeing his fate in front of him, infinitempg resigned after the ninth game of the season, leaving behind a battered 1-8 team.

couches era (2016)

couches was brought on as the interim head coach to finish out the tumultuous 2016 campaign. The team went 0-3 in their final three games, and couches moved on.

Pardo86 era (2017)

During the offseason, Pardo86 was brought on to coach Syracuse. His team started the 2017 season off 1-4, leading yet another impatient coach to resign midseason.

Second N/A era (2017)

Chaos reigned again in the Syracuse football program. The team managed one conference win in five games under the watch of Pardo86's staff.

thevaklav era (2017)

Serving as an interim coach, thevaklav could do little to prevent two losses to close out 2017. After the season, he moved on from the program.

Third N/A era (2018)

Some remaining staff from Pardo86's tenure coached the first half of the 2018 season. The Orange went 1-5 over that stretch, leading to a midseason hire.

Duster era (2018-2019)

Duster finally provided some stability to the Syracuse program. He introduced a dynamic offensive system that averaged 30 points per game over his career at Syracuse. The team rallied to win four of its last six games in 2018 and rode that momentum into 2019. The 2019 season still stands as the best in Syracuse history. A 9-3 regular season included a win at #19 Boston College and a historic 49-37 victory over #1 Florida State in Tallahassee. The Orange were invited to the Music City Bowl, in which they beat Missouri, and finished at #17 in the Coaches Poll. Duster was hired elsewhere after engineering such a dramatic turnaround.

Greenwhirl era (2020)

Greenwhirl took over a program coming off the best season in school history and losing a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback. He struggled to replace the talent from the 2019 squad and managed just a 4-8 record in his first season. Greenwhirl left the job following the season.

arc1126 era (2021)

arc1126 accepted the head coaching position prior to the 2021 season. He led the team to within one game of a bowl, at 5-7. When a job opened up at Washington State at the end of the season, he headed west.

CoachAnson era (2022 - )

CoachAnson was hired immediately after the conclusion of the 2021 season. He will be the 9th head coach at Syracuse, and will hope to bring the program back to national prominence.
