    Hey Syracuse, if you're looking for a recognizable name to fill your coaching vacancy, you could do worse than Ed Orgeron.

    The former Ole Miss and USC coach told Syracuse.com he would be interested in becoming the head coach at Syracuse. The school fired Scott Shafer on Monday. Orgeron is a former assistant with the Orange.

    "First of all, my days at Syracuse were fantastic," Orgeron said during a telephone conversation. "I learned a lot under Coach (Paul) Pasqualoni. I know Coach (Dick) MacPherson and a lot of ex-players and a lot of players who are there now.

    "I have a lot of respect for Syracuse. Great private school, great education, great tradition. So, obviously, my interest would be very high. I'd be highly interested in getting that job. I think it would be a wonderful opportunity to go back there."
