Carlson: ‘Confluence of events’ would need to happen to lure Dino Babers from Syracuse

Syracuse head coach DIno Babers watches from the sidelines. Mandatory Photo Credit: Kicia Sears, The Juice Online.’s Chris Carlson calls in to talk about the Orange’s win over West Virginia in the Camping World Bowl. After, editor in chief Brad Bierman then talks about Syracuse basketball starting ACC play.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: With the 10 wins, Dino Babers is going to become a hot coaching commodity. The Miami job was open for all of 12 hours over the weekend and there were some rumblings that he was going to be linked to that. He’s probably going to be linked to a lot of other openings in the future, even with the contract extension. Do you actually think Dino Babers stays long term at Syracuse?

Chris Carlson: I kind of look at it like this. He wants to win a National Championship. I’m not sure you can do that at Syracuse. But I also think there are only a handful of jobs in the country you can do that at. All those are schools who can pick their coach every single year. Dino Babers has to be the hot coach of the entire coaching cycle in the year that those schools have an opening for him to not be the head coach at Syracuse. To me, the odds are that he stays the coach at Syracuse. The confluence of events for him to get one of those jobs is so unlikely that I think he ends his career at Syracuse.
