New USF coach Jeff Scott has made his first formal staff hiring, announcing Arkansas strength and conditioning coach Trumain Carroll will serve in the same capacity with the Bulls.

"Our strength and conditioning staff spends a great deal of time with our student-athletes, so it was very important to get the right person to lead that effort,” Scott said in a USF news release.

“Trumain has a track record of developing players and preparing them for success and will be an excellent coach and mentor for the young men in our program."

A married father of a young son, Carroll has spent the past five seasons working for Chad Morris, first at SMU (2015-17) and later at Arkansas (2018-19). Morris spent four seasons (2011-14) as Clemson offensive coordinator, working alongside Scott.

Before hooking up with Morris, Carroll spent two seasons as assistant strength coach at Oklahoma State, where he played defensive end from 2001-05.

Look for Scott, who on Monday informed all 10 of Charlie Strong’s on-field assistants they wouldn’t be retained, to begin announcing more staffers in fairly short order. His father ― former South Carolina coach Brad Scott ― is expected to serve in an off-field role.
