USF assistant basketball coach Jeremy Cox leaving for Nebraska

USF men's basketball coach Stan Heath suddenly has an opening on his staff, as Jeremy Cox, a top assistant and recruiter for the Bulls for the past two seasons, is leaving to join Doc Sadler's staff at Nebraska.

Heath confirmed Wednesday that Cox was leaving the Bulls to be reunited with Sadler, who he coached with as an assistant at Arkansas-Fort Smith in 2002-03. Cox was a key part of Heath's staff, not only in coaching but in helping the Bulls land a slew of top junior college recruits in the past two years -- guards Jawanza Poland and Hugh Robertson this year and incoming recruits Andre Jackson and Blake Nash.

The Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star first reported the possibility of Cox joining the Nebraska staff, citing unnamed sources. Cox had also expressed an interest in returning to his home state of Wyoming for the Cowboys' head coaching job, which has since been filled.

    1. Saturday's triumph will do little to fortify USF's strength of schedule, but its strength-of-character quotient might have increased. On the road facing an eclectic offense, the Bulls built a huge lead, then made critical plays in the waning moments after some defensive lapses. In short, they survived. Isn't …
