A tweet from Bulls football strength and conditioning coach Hans Straub made USF coach Willie Taggart “very disappointed,” according to an article in the Tampa Tribune.
“Thought an organization with 5 Super Bowl titles would have a stricter draft criteria,” Straub tweeted after former USF defensive end Aaron Lynch was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. “Clearly, integrity & character are not a priority.”
The tweet has since been deleted.
According to an email from USF Associate Athletic Director for Communications Brian Siegrist, Hans Straub submitted his resignation to USF AD Mark Harlan. The email stated a national search for his replacement will begin immediately.
Taggart was once an assistant under Jim Harbaugh, who is currently the coach of the 49ers.
Lynch, a fifth-round pick in this year’s NFL draft, earned first-team AAC honors by leading the team with six sacks and 12.5 tackles for a loss.
Lynch was suspended for the first quarter of USF’s game against Louisville on Oct. 26. for violating team rules.
