Syracuse Football: Bobby Acosta Hired To Coach Tight Ends

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The former Widener head coach Bobby Acosta has spent most of his career in NJ and Delaware.

When Rob Moore left the Syracuse Orange to take a gig with the Buffalo Bills, it created a void in the coaching staff. Now we know exactly how that void is being filled.

We already knew OC George McDonald was going to take over the role of wide receivers coach, but what about the tight ends? That duty falls to Bobby Acosta, who was hired this week by Scott Shafer.

"Bobby is an extremely intelligent coach who understands east coast football and recruiting," Shafer said. "He has done an exemplary job developing a relationship with the coaches in New Jersey throughout his career. We welcome Bobby and Alicia to the Syracuse family."

Your first question is, what MAC connections does he have? The answer is, shockingly…none.

The former Rowan football player (Jersey what!) got his start coaching high school ball before parlaying an internship with the New York Jets and then a gig with the Cleveland Browns, incidentally the same time George McDonald was there. From there he went to Delaware (TEs), College of NJ (OC) and Widener (HC) last season. The Pride went 6-4 under his watch.

Acosta will be working closely with starter-for-now Josh Parris as well as Tyler Provo and other upcoming talent.

I'm gonna go ahead and guess Acosta will be scouring New Jersey and Delaware for recruits when he's not guiding the tight ends. Welcome to the club, Coach.
