Four years and 28 players later Doug Marrone has brought a New York flavor back to Syracuse football, but there is still room to grow

It’s important to Doug Marrone. That much is clear.

When Marrone accepted the head-coaching job at Syracuse University four years ago, it was one of the first things he brought up during his inaugural press conference. On Wednesday night during the SU football national letter of intent signing day press conference the topic came up again.

“We are not changing our stance on how we feel about the state of New York,” Marrone said. “We have to be able to get the best players out of this state before we can go to another state and try to get one of their best players.”
