Former player nabs coach’s job
It hasn’t taken long for the USF football team to replace some of the assistants who left for other teams.
Coach Jim Leavitt promoted yet another graduate assistant to full-time coach Tuesday, making Larry Scott the tight ends coach.
Scott was a part of USF’s original recruiting class in February 1996 and fills the position vacated by Greg Gregory, who was elevated to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Monday.
“Larry Scott has earned this position,” Leavitt said in a statement. “He has been a loyal USF Bull from the time he signed on to play for us back in 1996, and he has always done everything in his power to help this program advance forward. As a graduate assistant, he displayed an outstanding work ethic, a strong knowledge for the game and solid coaching skills. He has a real passion to be working for USF football.”
Scott graduated from USF in August 2000 and worked in the public sector, including two years with the state of Florida as a child protective investigator, as well as in high school coaching. In 2005, he returned to USF as director of high school relations before opting to move into coaching as a graduate assistant with the offense in 2006.
Scott also lettered as an offensive lineman for USF in 1997, 1998 and 1999.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
