Syracuse Football: Punter Jonathan Fisher Leaves Program

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE

Last year's starting punter is going to move on rather than spend another year as a back-up.

We just spent a whole lot of time talking about the guys who'll join the Syracuse Orange football team soon. So naturally the next step is to start talking about guys who won't be there by the time those commits get here.

Punter Jonathan Fisher, who came into the 2013 season as the stater but lost his job three games into it to then walk-on Riley Dixon, has decided to leave the program in order to focus on graduating early from SU.

Punter Jonathan Fisher has left the Syracuse football program to focus on graduating in December, said Sue Edson, the school's assistant athletics director of communications for football.

Fisher appeared in three games last season, averaging 39.1 yards on eight punts with a long of 55. He also converted an extra point against Wake Forest.

Fisher was New York's No. 1 punter coming out of Oaklfield, NY in 2011. He was Syracuse's starter for all of his sophomore season, but now that Dixon is on scholarship and has two years left to play, his playing time was probably over anyway.

Fare thee well, Jonathan, and good luck to you.
