Boeheim:Syracuse is better than any other place
It was just a couple days ago when Doug Marrone's name hit the news about being a new coach in the NFL. After Syracuse's basketball game Jim Boeheim took time after his 903rd win to talk about the situation.
"You know I'm not surprised. When you're talented people are going to inquire about you. You know I hope he's here. I think he'll do fine, I hope he stays here. I hope it's the right place for him. I think he's done an unbelievable job and I think he will continue to do an unbelievable job. But I've told him many times they've wanted me out of here many, many times."
The most recent conversation the Boeheim had with Marrone was a few days prior to the big media frenzy.
"I did have him over to my house the other night and I tried to convince him that Syracuse was better than Hawaii or any other place. I don't know if he believed that."
Whatever he chooses, Boeheim knows that Marrone will make the right choice.
"Well, he is a great coach. You know he'll make a great decision. He's done an unbelievable job here. So it's an amazing profession."
To date Marrone's name has come up with the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, and Kansas City Chiefs.
