Jim Boeheim has seen a rash of players depart SU early in recent years, but play with minimal success in the professional ranks.
While numerous star players have come and gone, one thing at Syracuse University has remained constant: head coach Jim Boeheim.
Boeheim walked onto SU's campus as a freshman in 1963 and has been there ever since. In his candid autobiography, Bleeding Orange: Fifty Years of Blind Referees, Screaming Fans, Beasts of the East, and Syracuse Basketball, the 39-year head coach reflects on his time at Syracuse and the game he loves.
The SU head coach emphasized the cleanliness of his team and expressed displeasure with the NCAA's rulings two weeks ago.
For those who have always thought or wondered, SU men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim made it abundantly clear Thursday morning.
He does not run Syracuse University, and his time with the program is running out.

Rakeem Christmas struggled in his final home game at SU against the top-ranked Cavalier defense.
Syracuse started strong defensively in Monday’s matchup with No. 2 Virginia, but it was the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season-champion Cavaliers that eventually dominated both ends en route to a 59-47 victory on Syracuse’s senior night at the Carrier Dome.
With the win, the Cavaliers clinched their second-straight ACC regular-season title, becoming the first program other than Duke or North Carolina to do so since North Carolina State in 1974.
