He moved from assistant coach to head coaching duties of Syracuse on March 25, 2013 after Jon Cooper was promoted to the Lightning. Zettler coached the Crunch for the final 11 regular season games of the season and led the team to an AHL Eastern Conference championship and their first appearance in a Calder Cup Final before falling in six games to the Grand Rapids Griffins.
