USF promotes Bye to head track coach
USF announced Wednesday that assistant track coach Warren Bye has been promoted to head coach for the Bulls‚Äô men‚Äôs and women‚Äôs teams.
Bye, 36, has been USF‚Äôs interim coach since April, when Greg Thiel stepped down after six years to become athletic director at The Cambridge School in Tampa.
Bye is entering his third year at USF, after spending six seasons at Louisville, including three as head women‚Äôs cross country and track coach. Before that, he coached three seasons at his alma mater, Indiana.
He‚Äôll oversee a staff of four assistants at USF, which received an allocation of $2.79-million from Hillsborough County in May to build and renovate an outdoor track and field facility with two new tracks to be used jointly by the Bulls and the county.
