Syracuse Football: Tim Lester To Be Named New QB Coach, Per Report

USA TODAY Sports

Former Elmhurst College head coach Tim Lester is reportedly going to be Syracuse's new quarterback coach.

Syracuse football head coach Scott Shafer has reportedly added a quarterbacks coach in former Elmhurst College head coach Tim Lester, FootballScoop.com is reporting.

Lester's connection with Shafer goes back to his Western Michigan days when both were a part of the coaching staff in 2005-06. Shafer served as the defensive coordinator, while Lester was the quarterbacks coach under head coach Bill Cubit.

In 2011, Lester was enshrined in the WMU Athletic Hall of Fame for his play as quarterback (1996-99) for the Broncos (the last link is a nice piece written on Lester in '11). Lester set numerous passing records at WMU, which were later broken by Tim Hiller, a player whom he recruited and coached for two seasons.

On Monday, Lester announced his resignation as Elmhurst College head coach.

Lester spent the last 10 seasons at Elmhurst, located in suburban Chicago, where he started as an offensive coordinator in 2002. After seven seasons, Lester was promoted to head coach where he helped the program compile a 33-19 record.

Lester's tenure ended on a very positive note, as he helped lead the Bluejays to a program-best 10-2 record that featured the school's first-ever trip to the Division III NCAA playoffs.

Elmhurst advanced to the second round of the playoffs after defeating Coe College in the first round.
