Special Teams Not A Huge Concern For Cornell

Three Syracuse football coaches were cut loose at the end of the season. Bob Casullo was not one of them, much to the chagrin of many fans.  Casullo lorded over a special teams unit that always seemed to do the wrong thing at the wrong time and never really showed much improvement as the season wore on.

Looks like the situation may be working itself out anyway.  Via VOTL, Footballscoop.com is saying that Casullo has interviewed for the head post at Cornell.  Their former coach recently left to be the DC at Duke.  According to VOTL, Casullo has a lot of competition for the position.

Nebraska volunteer assistant and former TD Ameritrade CEO Joe Moglia, former Rutgers head coach and current NFL quarterbacks consultant Terry Shea, Penn State linebackers coach Rob Vanderlinden. Ole Miss offensive coordinator Kent Austin and Texas A&M - Commerce coach Guy Morris.

Marrone seems particularly loyal to Casullo, who worked alongside Doug at GT and has extremely strong Central New York ties.  Wonder how he feels about this (I'm guessing he gave his blessing).

Meanwhile, Footballscoop is also saying that Marrone is talking to New England Patriots quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien.  O'Brien and Marrone worked together at Georgia Tech where he went from graduate assistant to assistant head coach/offensive coordinator in 7 seasons.  He also spent time at Duke and Maryland before heading to New England.  You have to assume that he'd be coming for the OC position and not just the QB job.
