"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.
