  Syracuse University gave its new Athletic Director John Wildhack a big “welcome home” celebration today. Wildhack, an alumni of Syracuse University, says the decision to take the job was driven by a love for the University.

“It’s a big passion play. There is no question. The love that I have for this University is significant. The chance to come home, the chance to work with young people, and help young people develop, develop academically, develop athletically, and to work with a talented group of coaches, that excites me.”
