Syracuse’s Dino Babers addresses job security: ‘My job belongs to my employer. My career belongs to me.’

Syracuse football head coach Dino Babers was asked about his job security ahead of what might be the final game of the team’s 2021 season. With a bowl-or-bust matchup against No. 20 Pittsburgh looming on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Babers addressed the media in his weekly press conference on Monday.

One reporter asked whether he felt he’d done enough at the helm of the 5-6 program to merit a seventh season in his tenure.

“This is a very easy, very easy question to answer,” Babers said. “My job belongs to my employer. My career belongs to me. I only control the things that I can control. I also believe that good coaches get hired and good coaches get fired. And really, really, really good coaches get re-hired. But I’ve always thought that, for 35 years, whether I was an assistant, a coordinator or a head coach. It’s not the most important thing.”
