Lustig gears up as ‘Cuse special teams coordinator by Mike Lantinen

As the special teams coordinator and running backs coach at Syracuse University, former Edinboro Fighting Scots Football Head Coach Justin Lustig will be diving right in. As spring camp nears closer and closer, there isn’t much time to spare.

In a statement released by Syracuse Head Coach Dino Babers, he spoke on the new hire, stating, “The job Justin did as a first-time head coach was fantastic.”

“He’s also been a highly- successful assistant coach. The running backs he has coached have performed extremely well, and his special teams units have consistently ranked among the nation’s best. We’re very excited to welcome Justin and his family to Syracuse.”

Lustig took the Scots from an 0-11 record to 9-2 this past season and was previously an assistant coach at Ball State.

“My family and I are excited, honored and grateful for the opportunity to come to Syracuse and join Coach Babers’ staff,” Lustig said in a statement.

The now former Scot continued: “He is building a championship program there. The future of Syracuse football is very bright and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
