Vandy hands Bulls fourth straight loss
It's just speculation from one newspaper, but USF offensive coordinator Greg Gregory has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the head coaching vacancy at Army, where he worked from 1982-97, including nine seasons as offensive coordinator.
Gregory was one of six current assistants identified by the Times Herald-Record of New York as possible candidates to replace Stan Brock, who was fired after back-to-back 3-9 seasons. Of the six names, four had direct ties to Army, including Gregory and Kansas offensive coordinator Ed Warinner.
Gregory said after Saturday's practice that he did not want to comment on the opening. "I'm not going to politick for any job," said Gregory, who expressed an interest after last season in the head coaching job at his alma mater, Richmond. "If something happens, you'll always entertain an interest if they show interest."
Gregory is finishing his fourth season on Jim Leavitt's staff and his second as offensive coordinator. The Bulls led the Big East in total offense, averaging 397.4 yards per game, but USF also saw its scoring in conference games drop off considerably this season. The Bulls have totaled 70 points in their last five games, the lowest-scoring five-game stretch in the program's 12-year history.
USF receivers coach Mike Canales was a finalist for the opening at his alma mater, Utah State, but the job went to Utah defensive coordinator Gary Andersen.
