Daryl Gross Out as Syracuse AD [UPDATE: Jim Boeheim to Retire in Three Years]

By Ty Duffy

Syracuse AD Daryl Gross is out, according to Syracuse.com. He will stay on at the university.

"It is unclear whether he resigned or was fired. Gross will remain in a position with the university, a source with direct knowledge said. An announcement is expected this morning, sources said."

Gross was not implicated for wrongdoing in the basketball program’s recent academic scandal. Though, he did orchestrate the athletic department’s Fab Melo eligibility conference in 2012.

Gross was in his 10th year at Syracuse. He took the Orange from the Big East to the ACC. He was the impetus behind USC hiring Pete Carroll while he was an associate AD.

[UPDATE: After the AD news surfaced, Syracuse announced that basketball coach Jim Boeheim will retire in three years.]
