What will 2013 Syracuse Orange football look like? We know that Scott Shafer is going to coach hardnosed football, but what will our offensive coordinators bring to the table? We turn to the Daily Orange to find out.

First up, offensive coordinator and recruiting wunderkind George McDonald, who Shafer calls, "the best wide receiver coach I’ve ever been associated with." (Awkward, Rob Moore...). The article tells the story of McDonald's one season at Northern Illinois working with Darrell Hill. Hill credits McDonald with turning him into a pro-calibur WR that got drafted.

"We thought the guy was crazy, man," Hill said. "But when we got in the game action – a lot of those drills that we went through, the ball drills, coming out of the breaks – it really benefited us on game day."

"Once you bought into it, you respected it because it made you better," Hill said.

Next is defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough. He takes the reigns from Shafer, who's attack-attack-attack defense did a lot of attack-attack-attacking. Will anything change under Bullough? Probably not.

"Those are the guys I want to surround myself with," Shafer said. "Guys that are more talented than I am. My dad always said that, too, and we’ve all heard it, ‘Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you are but also people that are as passionate as you are, too.’

"That’s what we’ve got in Chuck Bullough."
