Syracuse, N.Y. - Syracuse head football coach Dino Babers announced the hiring of Zach Arnett as defensive coordinator on Saturday. One of the brightest, young defensive coaches in the college ranks, Arnett joins the Orange after most recently serving as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at San Diego State from 2018-19.

Arnett served as the Defensive Coordinator and linebackers coach at San Diego State from 2018-2019. Sis San Diego State defense ranked in the top 10 nationally in seven categories including second in rushing , third in scoring, and fourth in receptions and first downs allowed.

“Zach is a very talented coach,” Babers said. “He learned under a great defensive mind in Rocky Long at San Diego State and excelled when he got the opportunity to run the defense there. His qualities, both as a person and as a professional, are an excellent fit for our program. I’m excited to welcome Zach, his wife, Emily, and their children, Case and Collins, to Syracuse.” 

Before becoming a coach, Arnett played linebacker for four seasons (2005-08) at the University of New Mexico.

A native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Arnett attended La Cueva High School, where he was a two-sport standout in football and baseball. He originally signed to play baseball at New Mexico before earning a football scholarship the summer prior the start of his true freshman season.
