About the coaches

McAuliffe and Greene are “very familiar” with the Orange system, having played together for Babers when he coached Bowling Green, according to a Syracuse football news release.

A four-year starter and 2016 All-MAC selection, McAuliffe played two seasons for Babers at Bowling Green. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communication and minor in entrepreneurship sales from Bowling Green and is pursuing a master’s degree in instructional design, development and evaluation at Syracuse.

Greene is the all-time leading rusher for Bowling Green. He was a teammate of McAuliffe’s and played the 2014 and 2015 seasons for Babers. Greene signed as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Redskins in May 2016. He was also briefly a member of the CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks, according to the release. Greene received his bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from Bowling Green in 2015. His brother, Trent, is a defensive graduate assistant for the Orange.   

Gunter joined the Syracuse football recruiting staff in August 2017 as a senior intern before being elevated to the position of recruiting quality assistant. He assists Asil Mulbah, director of recruiting operations, in attracting football players to Syracuse University.

Scorzelli has been a member of the Syracuse football strength and conditioning staff since 2016. Before his promotion to assistant strength and conditioning coach, he worked as an intern for two seasons, per the release.

Teter comes to Syracuse after serving as the head strength and conditioning coordinator at Central Missouri for the past six years. At Central Missouri, Teter was responsible for implementing the strength and conditioning programs for all 17 of the Mules intercollegiate athletic programs, and directly supervised football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s golf, wrestling, and bowling, Syracuse football said.
