USF AD Mark Harlan told a university Board of Trustees work group that he will continue to examine the possibility of building an on-campus stadium.

We're in the "feasibility study" part of the timeline on this one. Not only is there no timetable for when a final stadium proposal would be ready, there isn't even a timetable for when the feasibility study itself will be finished. And then there is the issue of money. "Apparently these things aren't free," Harlan told reporters, "so we need to really look into all those things and really decide if there's an appetite for it." The Bulls will continue to play at Raymond James Stadium for the foreseeable future.

Eric Lee - DL - Bulls

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports that USF DE Eric Lee worked out for the Texans.

Per Wilson, Lee went through his workout with Texans LB coach Mike Vrabel on Friday. He also hears that the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder has drawn "steady interest" from the Patriots. Last season, Lee offered a bit of everything on the field, recording 45 tackles (11.5 for loss), four sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles. If he manages to crack the draft, it would come on Day 3. Otherwise, undrafted free agency may lie in his immediate future.

USF redshirt freshman LB Cecil Cherry was listed as the backup to ILB Auggie Sanchez following spring practices.

Sanchez picked off two balls in the spring game. Cherry has some work to do to crack the starting lineup, but he has both time and talent on his side. The Texas transfer is a former four-star recruit.

USF TE Sean Price worked out for the Texans on Friday.

Price is an H-back, which in this case is a nice way of saying he's a tweener. The 6-foot-3, 252-pounder logged =20 catches for 306 yards a career-best five touchdowns in 2015. He didn't reach 1,000 yards receiving total across four seasons with the Bulls.

USF senior CB Lamar Robbins has been reinstated to the program.

Robbins and teammate Benjamin Knox landed in hot water last October after they reportedly fired a gun off in celebration following the team's 45-24 win over Syracuse. While he was initially charged with a second-degree felony of discharging a weapon on school property and a misdemeanor for providing false information to a law-enforcement officer, those charges have now been dropped. Also dropped, the indefinite suspension hanging over the head of the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Robbins. Said HC Willie Taggart, "He's just like all the other guys. He handled his business, took care of his consequences and now we're moving on and getting better and learning from our mistakes."

USF senior DE Daniel Awoleke has been awarded a sixth year of eligibility.

The exact nature of Awoleke's waiver was deemed "complicated" by Tampa Bay Times reporter Joey Knight, but the offshoot is that the 6-foot-5, 283-pounder is back in the fold for another season. A former walk-on, Awoleke was awarded a scholarship prior to the start of the 2015 campaign. HC Willie Taggart is pumped to have him for another year, saying, "I know he was excited, but it was great to see how excited his teammates were, knowing that they’re gonna have another year with him around here, running around on special teams and hitting people really hard, and then helping out on the defensive line."

Sports Illustrated's Thayer Evans reports that USF has hired former Arkansas State OL coach Darren Hiller to serve as run game coordinator and OL coach.

Hiller's stint at Arkansas State was as brief as brief can be. He was hired as OL coach in January and stepped down after a week. Before that minuscule stint, he had acted as Cincinnati's OL coach for three seasons. With the Bulls, he'll be replacing Danny Hope, who earlier left the program due to a personal matter.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that USF will hire former Buccaneers QB Shaun King to serve as QB coach.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy was on this story several days ago, but at the time, it was unknown what role King might serve for the Bulls. We now have that missing piece of the puzzle. With the 38-year-old King set to coach up the Bulls' quarterbacks, former QB coach David Reeves will shift over to coaching tight ends. After a record-setting career at Tulane, King went on to play for the Bucs, Cardinals, Lions and Colts at the NFL level before retiring in 2007.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports that former Buccaneers QB Shaun King will join the USF staff in an undetermined capacity.

King's entrance comes just as co-OC/OL coach Danny Hope announced he would step down, but there's no word as to whether King's role on staff will relate to that in any fashion. Buccaneer fans with long memories might remember King from his stint with the team from 1999 to 2003. He played his college ball at Tulane. This is King's first foray into the happy fun world of coaching.

USF co-OC and OL coach Danny Hope has stepped down to be closer to his family.

South Florida's coaching staff has taken a few hits of late, starting with defensive coordinator Tom Allen, who took the same position at Indiana. Now it's Hope exiting stage left. The 2015 campaign marked his first season with the Bulls. In a statement HC Willie Taggart said, "He loved it here and I loved having him, but sometimes you have to make choices in regards to what’s best for your family. I respect Danny’s desire to do what’s best for him and his family. We wish him nothing but the best in the future." Expect USF to name a new OL coach in the coming days.

USF signed four-star WR Darnell Salomon.

Salomon stands as the only ESPN 300 player to join the Bulls, with the outlet ranking the 6-foot-3, 206-pound wideout as their No. 204 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle. The Miami native received interest of varying degrees from Alabama, Arkansas and Clemson early in the process before committing to USF in November. While ESPN attached a relatively low ranking here, their scouting report is anything but dismissive, calling him "one of the better pure athletes this receiver class has to offer" due to his "terrific ball skills and body control and [ability to] use his height well in jump ball match-ups." They believe his top-end speed is fine--if not elite--and that he could benefit from tightening up on his route-running. Beyond that, though, there's a ton to love, especially given that USF isn't a top-tier collegiate destination for most athletes.
Feb 8 - 7:17 PM

USF hired Michigan senior offensive analyst T.J. Weist to serve as WR coach.

Weist and Bulls' HC Willie Taggart worked together for six seasons at Western Kentucky during the 2000's. The new USF WR coach had spent the last season on Jim Harbaugh's staff at Michigan. Taggart's sky high on the hire, saying "I'm very excited to bring somebody to our program that I know so well and that has had the experience and the success T.J. Weist has in college football. Our offense set several records in 2015, and I can't wait to get started working on breaking them." Nice humble brag, Coach. We approve.

USF TE Sean Price accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Price was named to the John Mackey watch list prior to the season. While he went on to score a career-best five touchdowns in 2015, the 6-foot-3, 252-pounder logged just 20 catches for 306 yards this past season. He's logged 76 catches for 907 yards over the course of his four seasons with the Bulls.
Jan 17 - 5:05 PM

The Tampa Bay Times' Joey Knight reports that USF will promote LB coach Raymond Woodie to defensive coordinator.

Woodie will see the promotion due to the fact that current DC Tom Allen's reportedly accepted a job elsewhere. For his part, Woodie joined the South Florida coaching staff in 2012. He began his duties as linebacking coach just this past season, but it looks like he'll be taking another step up the rung on the ladder.
Jan 16 - 2:11 PM

According to Sports Illustrated's Thayer Evans and FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman, USF WR coach Ron Dugan will join Miami in the same capacity.

After a slew of coaching changes on the college football landscape, the hot stove has begun to simmer down. Nothing's official yet, but it looks like Dugan will be joining Mark Richt at Georgia. The 38-year-old worked as a graduate assistant at Florida State for two seasons before being hired as wide receiver coach at Louisville in 2010. He joined USF in the same capacity in 2014. Now onward to Miami.
