Football Scoop reported Wednesday that Syracuse University assistant football coach Bob Casullo (pictured) has interviewed for the head coaching vacancy at Cornell.  The Big Red are in search of a new sideline general after alumnus and former player Jim Knowles departed to become the defensive coordinator at Duke.

Casullo coached the Orange special teams and tight ends while serving as assistant head coach to Doug Marrone in 2009.  Prior to that, he spent nine seasons as an assistant in the NFL.

According to Football Scoop, Cornell has also shown interest in the following coaches: Nebraska volunteer assistant and former TD Ameritrade CEO Joe Moglia, former Rutgers head coach and current NFL quarterbacks consultant Terry Shea, Penn State linebackers coach Rob Vanderlinden, Ole Miss offensive coordinator Kent Austin, and Texas A&M-Commerce coach Guy Morris.

UPDATE: Kent Austin has reportedly withdrawn his name from consideration.
