Jeff Scott fired after 2+ years as head coach at South Florida

South Florida head coach Jeff Scott has been fired after less than three seasons at the helm, AD Michael Kelly announced on Sunday. Scott went 4-26 (1-19 AAC) overall, with the Bulls currently sitting at 1-8 (0-5) this season.

“When Jeff came to Tampa in December of 2019, we had high expectations for where he could take our football program,” Kelly said in the release. “While he did so many things right, including rebuilding our culture, pushing forward our Indoor Performance Facility, and engaging our community, the on-the-field results fell well below our standards.”

Scott arrived at USF after spending twelve seasons on Dabo Swinney’s staff at Clemson. The former Tigers’ player was part of two national championships at his alma mater.

Kelly announced that DC Bob Shoop has also been let go and that special teams coordinator Daniel Da Prato will be interim head coach for the rest of the season. The Bulls host SMU this coming weekend.
