How many former Bulls now coaching? 27

26

August

With USF's football program entering its 13th season, former Bulls players are getting old enough to be stepping into more experienced jobs as coaches. Jim Leavitt's current staff reflects that, with five former USF players now on the staff, most notably co-offensive line coach Larry Scott, in his third year as a position coach after rejoining the program as director of high school relations, then a year as a graduate assistant.

We set out this summer to create a comprehensive list of former USF players now coaching at the college and high school level, talking with coaches and the players themselves, hoping to compile as close to complete a list as possible. If there's someone we've missed, please mention the omission in the comments here, or send an e-mail to auman@sptimes.com and we'll verify and add to the list.
