Marrone, who was named coach of the Buffalo Bills Monday, preached discipline, accountability, character, and integrity, in rejuvenating a team that went 10-37 under his predecessor, Greg Robinson, and transformed it into a two-time bowl winner.
Syracuse finished 2012 at 8-5 after beating West Virginia 38-14 in the Pinstripe Bowl and earned a share of the Big East regular-season title with a 5-2 conference mark, its best since Paul Pasqualoni's 2001 team went 6-1.
Shafer tabbed Chuck Bullough as Syracuse's defensive coordinator but still has to find an offensive coordinator. Nathaniel Hackett left to join Marrone's staff in the same role.
