Coach Greg Robinson out at Syracuse

By By The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse coach Greg Robinson was fired Sunday with the Orange two games away from finishing a fourth straight dismal season under his leadership.

Robinson was 9-35 in three-plus seasons at Syracuse and 3-23 in the Big East. He had another year left on a contract that paid him $1.1 million per season.

Syracuse (2-8, 1-5) lost to Connecticut 39-14 Saturday night and is trying to avoid a third 10-loss campaign. The Orange had never lost 10 games in a season before Robinson was hired by athletics director Daryl Gross to replace Paul Pasqualoni after the 2004 season.
