Babers on head coach openings: ‘I only talk about the job I have’

In thrusting Syracuse into the national spotlight with a win over Clemson and nearly upsetting No. 9 Miami on the road, Dino Babers vaulted himself into head coaching rumors. Babers is a potential head coach candidate for Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

After dropping its third-straight game and falling to 3-4, Florida and coach Jim McElwain parted ways Sunday. The highly competitive position in Gainesville puts several coaches as potential UF job candidates.

On Wednesday, Syracuse’s second-year head coach reiterated comments he made Monday, saying he does not talk about contracts mid-season.

“I only talk about the job I have,” Babers said. “I have one job. And contracts, I don’t talk about that during season.”
