Ex-Syracuse DC Chuck Bullough headed to Eastern Michigan

Former Syracuse defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough lost his job at the start of the Dino Babers era, but now has a new job.

According to a press release, Bullough has been hired at Eastern Michigan to serve as head coach Chris Creighton’s defensive line coach. Bullough had spent the previous three years at Syracuse and has coached every defensive position on top of his experience as a coordinator, not to mention the offensive line.

“Coach Bullough brings tremendous experience and pass for the game of football to our staff and program,” Creighton said. “He is going to make our defensive line better. He is very excited about being back in the great state of Michigan and will do an awesome job recruiting. Chuck is a great fit for who we are and what we are all about.”

Bullough spent two seasons in Michigan, serving under Nick Saban at Michigan State. He also has NFL experience with five different teams, most recently the Cleveland Browns.

Given how EMU has gone 3-21 (1-15 MAC) the past two years and ranked 123rd in total defense, not to mention hasn’t finished above .500 since 1995, here’s hoping that Bullough’s hiring can be the start of the turnaround.
