It wouldn't be the start of another Syracuse Orange football season if someone wasn't leaving the program. This year it's OL Andrew Phillips, a senior from CBA who decided not to use his final year of eligibility.

It wouldn't be the start of another Syracuse Orange football season if someone wasn't leaving the program. This year it's OL Andrew Phillips, a senior from CBA, who decided not to use his final year of eligibility.

"I pretty much wasn't sure (if I would come back) after the season ended," Phillips said. "I decided to give it a go through offseason workouts, conditioning. My heart wasn't into it, so I decided it was just that time."

Phillips played in every game last season in a backup role and on special teams. According to Scott Shafer, Phillips would have "been in the mix" but it sounds like a starting gig just wasn't in the cards.

Phillips says he's looking forward to being "a normal person" and will now focus on earning his degree and applying for jobs.

Here's a nice article on Phillips from a few years back on how he handled being thrust into playing time at an early age.

Not gonna fault a guy for doing what he wants. Thanks for the effort, Andrew and good luck to you in your career.
