first_imgSyracuse running back Delone Carter received a one-year conditional discharge for harassment in City Court Thursday for punching a fellow Syracuse University student in a Feb. 27 snowball-throwing incident, said his attorney, Kimberly Zimmer. Carter pleaded guilty to the charges, Zimmer said, which were reduced from a misdemeanor third-degree assault charge by Judge Langston McKinney Thursday. The charges are contingent upon Carter, whose case now remains open for the next year on a probationary status. Assuming Carter avoids any additional legal trouble, the case would then be closed, Zimmer said. ‘He pled guilty to harassment,’ Zimmer said. ‘The conditional discharge was basically his sentence. So the case remains open, if you will, until that year’s up. If there are no further problems with the law, then the case is closed and that’s it.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Through Zimmer, Carter offered a statement expressing relief that the process was finally over and gratitude to everyone who had helped him through the process. ‘He said he’s very thankful to those who have helped him through this process,’ Zimmer said, ‘including his family and the Syracuse University football program.’ Carter’s case had been postponed several times before finally reaching a conclusion on Thursday. The latest time it had been postponed was Sept. 14. Zimmer said that was normal in court proceedings similar to Carter’s situation. ‘That happens for a variety of reasons,’ Zimmer said. ‘Based on attorneys’ availabilities and others. But that happens typically in a lot of cases.’ The news comes just days after Carter was recognized by the Big East as the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week following his 172-yard, four-touchdown performance Saturday against Colgate. In what was first reported by The Daily Orange on March 3, a passenger exited a black SUV on the 300 block of Waverly Ave. and struck William Hotaling, a Syracuse student, in the face on Feb. 27 when a snowball hit the vehicle. The suspect was later revealed as Carter, who was riding with teammates Ryan Gillum, Donte Davis and Daniel Bailey in Gillum’s 2007 GMC Yukon. After the Syracuse Department of Public Safety and the Syracuse Police Department investigated, Carter and Gillum were taken in by police for questioning on April 14 in the hours leading up to Syracuse’s spring practice session that day. Carter was charged with assault later that night, and was subsequently suspended from the team and the university the following day. Carter missed the final two days of spring practice and the annual spring game. On Aug. 9 at Syracuse’s media day, SU head coach Doug Marrone announced Carter’s reinstatement and said he would not be further disciplined by the team. ‘We look forward to (Delone Carter) coming back and being a part of this team,’ Marrone said on Aug. 9. ‘One of the things that has happened is that we have taken disciplinary action internally as a football program and Judicial Affairs has had its part in that. As far as our football program goes, we have punished Delone and that punishment has been carried out. Now it is time for us to move forward.’ Added Marrone: ‘We took action right away, which is the way our program is. We took action immediately, internally, right off the bat, prior to him leaving campus and that punishment was fulfilled.’ And now, it appears the criminal trial proceedings and obligations are fulfilled for Carter as well. Something about which Zimmer said Carter is relieved. ‘Throughout the process,’ Zimmer said, ‘he has matured and grown personally, and he’s very grateful to have this behind him.’ aljohn@syr.edu bplogiur@syr.edu Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on September 29, 2010 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more

first_imgAt 44, Chuck Noll had joined an elite level of NFL coaches with Vince Lombardi and Don Shula after the win in Super Bowl X. Noll, hired at 37, endured a 12-30 record in his first three seasons in Pittsburgh before the success came. (Phil Sandlin, AP)Chuck Noll.You see the name and you immediately think four time Super Bowl winning coach. Noll was one of the best to ever coach the game and fortunately for the Steelers, he spent his entire 22 year head coaching career with the black and gold.After being a defensive assistant with the Chargers for six seasons and then three more years under Don Shula in Baltimore, Noll was hired as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1969 at the age of 37.Noll struggled out of the gates only winning 12 games in his first 42 tries and not making the playoffs until his fourth year with the Steelers.  By year six, the team that would form the eventual dynasty of the 70’s was born and Noll led his Pittsburgh Steelers to four Super Bowl titles in a span of six seasons.In 22 seasons, Noll compiled a record of 209-156-1, won nine division championships, four conference titles and four super bowl championships as well.  Two years after his retirement, Noll was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993.Noll was the father of the Steelers as we know them. Without him, the expectation to win a championship each year would not exist, the team would not have the most Super Bowl rings in league history and the rabid fan base may not even exist as it does today. Noll was a winner through and through and a true representation of the Pittsburgh culture.The Steelers were unsuccessful through their first four decades, when they appeared in just one postseason game. Then in 1969, the Steelers hired Chuck Noll, left, as head coach and he, with a core of players including QB Terry Bradshaw, changed the fortunes of the franchise.
