USF announced multiple changes to its football coaching staff Friday, including the addition of former standout quarterback BJ Daniels as an analyst.

Coach Jeff Scott announced the hiring of Cam Aiken as the Bulls’ running backs coach and run game coordinator. Aiken spent the past six seasons at Clemson and worked with Scott there. He was a senior offensive assistant last season during the Tigers’ College Football Playoff run and was an offensive player development coach before that.

Daniels rejoins the Bulls as an offensive analyst who will work with quarterbacks. The Tallahassee native is in the top three in USF history in passing yards (8,433) and touchdowns (52) and won 21 games as a starter. He spent time in the NFL, CFL and XFL and was most recently the head coach at Tallahassee’s Lincoln High.

“It’s fantastic to have BJ back in green and gold and helping to lead our quarterbacks,” Scott said in a statement. “I’m just very excited to have one of the great players in the history of our program, who also has tremendous professional experience as a player, to be able to return and help lead us toward a very exciting future.”

USF also announced the hiring of Western Carolina defensive line coach Reuben Wright as a defensive analyst. Xavier Dye will move from receivers coach to tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator.
