Jim Boeheim done as Syracuse coach after 47 seasons, Adrian Autry steps in to lead Orange basketball program

After 47 seasons, legendary coach Jim Boeheim has retired from Syracuse University's basketball program.

He led the Orange to over 1000 victories and an NCAA Championship in 2003.

Adrian Autry, a former Syracuse player and Boeheim's assistant for the past decade, will take over as head coach.

Autry played for Syracuse from 1990-1994 and has been an assistant coach for the Orange since 2011.

He has also served as an assistant coach at Virginia Tech and at his alma mater, Virginia Union.

Autry inherits a team that finished with a 16-9 record last season and returns several key players, including Buddy Boeheim.

The Orange have a rich basketball history and are known for their zone defense.

Boeheim's departure marks the end of an era, but Autry will look to continue the program's winning tradition.

Autry has already been recruiting for Syracuse and is focused on building a team that can compete at the highest level.
