USF staff loses Hope, potentially adds former Buccaneer

When USF football takes the field next season, a nearly entirely different offensive staff will be roaming the sidelines.

The school announced Thursday that co-offensive coordinator Danny Hope will be leaving USF to "be closer to his family," according to a release.

Hope helped the Bulls offense rack up a program record 5,741 yards and 54 touchdowns. USF has already lost wide receivers coach Ron Dugans and defensive coordinator Tom Allen last month.

"I expect to be able to complete our staff very quickly with an excellent offensive line coach,” Taggart said in the release. “I will continue to call the plays and work closely with our offense, and we will build our staff around that same structure.”

That ​staff may include former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Shaun King, according to a report from ESPN. King is expected to be hired to coach the quarterbacks, but no official word has been given.
