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.

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.

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.
Jan 9 - 6:02 PM

South Florida sophomore QB Quinton Flowers completed 14-of-34 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 45-35 loss to Western Kentucky in the Miami Beach Bowl.

He also led the Bulls on the ground with 109 yards and two more scores. Flowers, RB Marlon Mack and the rest of the Bulls' offense played about as well as could have been expected against the Hilltoppers, outside of a few Flowers misfires. Like most other teams, USF couldn't stop Western Kentucky's offense and spent the second half taking on water amid the futile exercise of going score-for-score with them.

USF has signed HC Willie Taggart to a three-year extension.

Athletic director Mark Harlan cited Taggart's "belief in what he is building." It's been a long, strange trip for the third-year head coach. In his first two seasons, the Bulls played to a dismal 6-18 record. They started out the 2015 campaign on the same track, losing three of their first four games. Then, magic/fire/etc, as USF won seven of their next eight contests. With the three-year extension, Taggart's contract now runs through 2020. USF currently holds a 14-7 second-quarter lead over Western Kentucky in the Miami Beach Bowl. It's their first bowl appearance since 2010.

According to an ESPN report, USF HC Willie Taggart interviewed for the vacant coaching position at South Carolina on Friday.

Over the summer, Taggart's job security seemed somewhat unstable, as he held a 6-18 record with the Bulls in his first two seasons. The heat increased after USF lost three of their first four games to open the 2015 season. Oh how times have changed. Taggart's squad has rattled off seven wins in their last eight games, including a rousing 44-23 win over Temple on November 14. South Carolina's also shown interest in Auburn DC Will Muschamp, as well as former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and current Arizona boss Rich Rodriguez.

South Florida sophomore RB Marlon Mack rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries in Friday's 65-27 win over Cincinnati.

With the Bulls already up 20-0 as the end of the first quarter neared, Mack cracked a 28-yard touchdown run, his first of the evening. He would later score on a 10-yard scamper in the second quarter. The 6-foot, 205-pound sophomore averaged a delightful 9.6 YPC. With the 106 yards rushing, he hit the century mark for the seventh time this season. It all adds up to 1,171 rushing yards and eight touchdowns across 10 games played.

South Florida sophomore QB Quinton Flowers completed 9-of-15 passes for 165 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 65-27 romp over Cincinnati.

Flowers also rushed for 49 yards on six carries. He took advantage of several early turnovers to bury the Bearcats with three touchdown passes in the first quarter of Friday's demolition. He would add his fourth and final scoring toss with 8:58 remaining in the first half, hitting Sean Price for a 46-yard touchdown. It made the score 41-3. At that point, anything else Flowers might have done just would have been cruel. For the season, the 6-foot, 217-pound sophomore's thrown for 1,841 yards with an 18/8 TD/INT ratio. He's chipped in an additional eight scores rushing.

USF junior WR Rodney Adams had five catches for 118 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 28-20 win over UConn.

Adams had only 11 catches for 108 yards and two scores coming into the day, so this performance kind of came out of nowhere. The junior finished third on the team with 23 catches and second with 323 yards receiving and two touchdowns last year.

USF redshirt sophomore QB Asiantii Woulard announced that the NCAA has granted his request to not lose a season of eligibility because of his transfer.

Over the summer, Woulard lobbied the NCAA to gain immediate eligibility after having transferred from UCLA. That waiver was denied, but the conglomerate has apparently decided not to count this transfer year against him, meaning he will have three years of eligibility remaining starting next year. The school has not yet confirmed Woulard's tweet.

South Florida sophomore Quinton Flowers will be the school's starting QB to open the season against Florida A&M.

Beat writer Joey Johnston points our head coach Willie Taggart has used five starting quarterbacks in two seasons as head coach. USF is moving towards spreading the field, and the coaching staff likes Flowers' fit in the system. He won the job over senior Steven Bench.
