SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Syracuse University football team has said goodbye to two more assistant football coaches, welcomed in two more, got two holdovers to stay put, and also had two players named to senior games--despite one only being a junior.

In the wake of former head coach Doug Marrone going to Buffalo, two more Syracuse assistants have followed: assistant head coach John Anselmo and strength and conditioning director Hal Luther. That news was countered with the announcement former Miami Hurricanes and Cleveland Browns receivers coach and ace recruiter George McDonald has been hired to be SU's new offensive coordinator, Tim Lester is coming in as the new quarterbacks coach, and receivers coach Rob Moore and defensive line coach Tim Daoust will remain in those positions under new head coach Scott Shafer.

On the players side, redshirt junior Justin Pugh, who has announced he is giving up his final year of collegiate eligibility to enter the NFL Draft, has been selected to participate in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 26, where he will likely protect Ryan Nassib, who is also playing. Pugh's selection along with that of Alabama lineman D.J. Fluker is historic as they will be the first non-seniors to play in the game. Cornell lineman J.C. Tretter will also be there.

Safety Shamarko Thomas will also get to show off for scouts in the East-West Shrine Game this Saturday.
