They have really, really fallen since they fired Jim Leavitt. Just seemed to kill their program’s upswing.

Without Jim Leavitt, there is no way they are in the AAC, much less having that time they spent in the Big East when that was a respectable football conference.

You think they'd want him back?    Not a chance he'd go back with how they kicked him out, but I bet they've reached out.

I do find it very interesting that Leavitt has never been a head coach again. Seems really weird, like stuff you don’t wanna know about is holding him back.

My favorite part....Chad Morris is bypassed for interim head coach...instead naming the Special Teams coach, lol.

"Da Prato also assumes the interim head coach’s role despite Scott’s addition earlier this year of veteran FBS head coach Chad Morris, the former skipper at both SEC resident Arkansas as well as SMU."

He has now managed to get himself, Gus Malzahn, and Jeff Scott all fired. We don’t want to be anywhere near this guy.

On January 8, 2010, Leavitt was fired after an investigation by USF officials found that he had struck a player in the locker room during halftime of a game against Louisville the previous November 21. Leavitt claimed he was merely trying to console the player and never struck him. School officials found that Leavitt was not truthful about what happened, and also found that he had interfered with the investigation.[7] ESPN's Ivan Maisel reported that Leavitt's interference, which included telling several players and coaches to change their stories, was the biggest factor in the decision to fire him.[8] The Tampa Tribune reported that school president Judy Genshaft and athletic director Doug Woolard felt they had no choice but to fire Leavitt after he refused to admit he had done anything wrong.[9] Running backs coach Carl Franks was named interim coach of the Bulls[10] until January 14, 2010, when Skip Holtz was hired as head coach.[11]

Geez. Thanks for that.
Cue the “I wish SL showed passion like Leavitt” crowd. 😂
