College Football

Pat Perles, the son of legendary Michigan State head coach George Perles, will coach the Syracuse University football team's offensive line. SU head coach Scott Shafer and Syracuse defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough are also second generation football coaches. Perles brings 23 years of collegiate and professional coaching experience to the Orange.

“The outstanding tradition of success and winning at Syracuse starts with the great players who have played there, including Jim Brown, Floyd Little and Ernie Davis, and the great coaches who have led the program, such as Coach Schwartzwalder and Coach MacPherson,” Perles said. “As the son of a coach, like Coach Shafer and Coach Bullough are, you look at the game through a certain pair of eyes. It is a different childhood and lifestyle – one I would not trade. My father taught me through his example how to balance family life and football. I am fortunate that his were faith, family and football. That is important.”

Perles joins the Orange after working with the Kansas City Chiefs for three seasons, including two as the assistant offensive line coach and one as a defensive quality control coach and assistant linebackers coach. In 2010 the Chiefs led the National Football League in rushing (164.2 ypg) and won the AFC West Division.
