After USF  announced Sunday that it was firing coach Skip Holtz after three seasons, at least one bay area recruit said he was remaining firm in his commitment to the Bulls. 

Plant LB/DE Mitchell Wright said the move "definitely doesn't change what I think about USF or going there. I'm disappointed and really wish I could've been coached by (Holtz). I wish him the best. But it doesn't change the way I feel (about USF)."

The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder picked the Bulls in July over offers from Boston College, FAU and UMass, saying at the time that he "felt good about the coaches there."

On Sunday, Wright stuck by his initial pick. "I'm taking an official visit to USF and that's it. That's what I want. I want them to feel comfortable with me. I gave them my word and I'm excited to go there."
