South Florida Bulls Fire Head Coach Charlie Strong After Three Seasons
By Space Coast Daily // December 2, 2019
Strong's overall record: 21-16
TAMPA, FLORIDA – USF has officially fired head coach Charlie Strong after serving three seasons as the Bulls coach.
Despite making two bowls within that span, USF failed to qualify for a bowl this season after suffering 4-8 record.
“I would like to thank Coach Strong and his staff for their hard work and contributions to our program,” said USF Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly.
“I have tremendous respect for Coach Strong and his dedication to recruiting and developing young men of talent and character and leading them with integrity. He has represented USF with dignity and class and we wish Coach and his family the very best.”
Strong had an 21-16 overall record.
One possible coaching candidate being talked about is the possibility of hiring Willie Taggart, who was previously the USF head coach from 2013-2016 before he ended taking the job at Oregon.
After serving one year as the head coach at Oregon, Taggart abandoned the Ducks to take the head coaching job at Florida State in 2018. Taggart was fired by Florida State this season on Nov. 3.
In 2016, he led the Bulls to 10–2 and won a share of the AAC East division. It was the Bulls first double digit win season in school history.
