Syracuse loses running backs coach

Syracuse is in the market for a running backs coach -- again.

Roger Harriott, who was hired late last month from University School of Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has decided to return to his old job for family reasons, the school announced. That leaves Doug Marrone again looking for a replacement for Stan Drayton.

Harriott seemed like an unconventional choice from the beginning because he had never coached in college. But he had roots in Florida which could have been valuable for recruiting purposes.
