Skip Holtz was offered the Syracuse football coaching job on Wednesday and has 48 hours to accept the position according to sources close to the situation.
Holtz met with Syracuse administrators early this week and Athletic Director Daryl Gross offered him the position early in the day Wednesday. The current ECU head coach is expected to attend a Liberty Bowl luncheon in Memphis tomorrow, before returning to Greenville where he will likely contemplate the offer and make his decision.
Holtz may also be using the extra time to see if he gets a better offer, or feel out schools that may have openings in the future if they would have an interest in Holtz.
If Holtz does not accept the job, expect Syracuse to name Al Golden, the current coach at Temple the head coach. Either way Syracuse should have a head coach by sundown Friday.
