New USF coach Jeff Scott and athletic director Michael Kelly confirmed Friday the Bulls’ April 18 spring game will remain at Corbett Stadium, the school’s on-campus soccer facility.

The start time hasn’t yet been announced. The intrasquad contest has been held at Corbett every year since 2014.

The pair confirmed the site on Kelly’s monthly, school-produced “Bull Speed Ahead” podcast. The idea of moving the game back to Raymond James Stadium, where it was held annually prior to ‘14, had been at least entertained upon Scott’s hiring in December.

Kelly also announced on the podcast the Bulls’ Oct. 10 game against East Carolina will be USF’s homecoming.

USF holds its first spring practice of the Scott era March 10. Scott didn’t indicate whether any practices will be open to the public, but characterized the spring game as “maybe one of the first times for our fans to see the new look in our team.”
