Dino Babers, Syracuse agree to a contract extension

After posting a 9-3 regular season record in 2018, his third season at the school, Syracuse and Dino Babers have agreed to a contract extension. Terms of the deal, which was announced Wednesday night, weren’t disclosed. (Syracuse is a private school.)

Babers joins Boston College’s Steve Addazio as one of two ACC football coaches to receive contract extensions this week.

After two seasons as a head coach at Bowling Green  (2014-15), Babers brought his go-go spread offense to Syracuse. After just eight wins across his first two seasons, Syracuse won nine games this year, and earned a bid in the 2018 Camping World Bowl.

The bowl appearance, which includes a matchup with West Virginia, is the program’s first since 2013. Syracuse spent five weeks in the AP Top 25 this season; it marked the first time since the 2001 season the program landed inside that poll.

If Syracuse can defeat West Virginia in its bowl game, it will give the Orange its first 10-win season since 2001, too.
