  5. INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF USF MEN'S BASKETBALL PROGRAM COMPLETED; TOM HERRION NO LONGER WITH THE PROGRAM June 15, 2021 TAMPA, JUNE 15, 2021 – An independent review of the USF men's basketball program concluded that Associate Head Coach Tom Herrion committed misconduct in violation of university policy stemming from inappropriate comments made to student-athletes. Following the review, USF Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly has decided not to renew Herrion's contract and Herrion is no longer with the program. "It is highly disappointing that the review confirmed isolated actions involving Coach Herrion's interactions with student-athletes that are simply unacceptable," Kelly said. The independent review of the men's basketball program, conducted by the firm of Lightfoot, Franklin & White, LLC, included 17 interviews of student-athletes, coaches and current and former staff members, as well as a review of related records, and university policies and regulations concerning diversity and inclusion and student and staff conduct. Aside from Herrion's conduct, the independent review found the men's basketball program is "proactive in addressing racial issues" and does not have a hostile or problematic culture as it relates to the issue of race. Other key review findings included, that "there is essentially no evidence that Coach Gregory or his staff failed to address a known racial problem" and that student-athletes believed "the leadership of the MBB program was proactive and effective in addressing racial and social justice issues." The review also found that Coach Gregory became aware of only one of the allegations presented and, when informed of the incident the day after it occurred, reported it to administrators that day. Members of the administration and Coach Gregory agreed on a course of action, as detailed in the report. "I was pleased to see the report's findings that head coach Brian Gregory and our administration are, and have been, operating in accordance with the University of South Florida's commitment to diversity and inclusion, and that our processes for ensuring those commitments are upheld," Kelly said. "Overall, the review reaffirms my belief in Coach Gregory's leadership of our program. Moving forward, our entire athletic department will continue to be dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment that allows every student-athlete to thrive." Starting in August 2020, USF Athletics began participating in a nationally recognized diversity and inclusion training program offered through the Institute of Sport and Social Justice in Orlando, Florida. Many coaches and staff have completed, or are in the process of completing, the program that will be mandatory for all. Athletics also bolstered its commitment to diversity and inclusion by establishing an Inclusive Excellence Committee in July 2020, with representation from across the athletic department, including head coaches, staff, and student-athletes. Senior Woman Administrator Marquita Armstead also added the title of Chief of Diversity and Inclusion with direct oversight of cultivating and retaining a diverse and inclusive department as leadership in this area was elevated to a cabinet-level position.

  10. Bulls Face Temple Thursday in AAC Tournament First Round March 10, 2021 Story Links Game Notes (PDF) Matchup: USF (8-12, 4-10) vs. Temple (5-10, 4-10) Date: Thursday, March 11 Time: 12 p.m. (EST) Location: Fort Worth, Texas | Dickies Arena TV: ESPNU (Mike Corey, Mark Adams) Radio: Bulls Unlimited (Jim Lighthall) Follow: Listen | Watch | Live Stats | Twitter TAMPA, FLA., MARCH 10, 2021 – The USF men's basketball team begins its quest for an American Athletic Conference championship Thursday at noon when the eighth-seeded Bulls face No. 9 Temple in the opening round of the conference tournament at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. The winner moves on to play top-seeded Wichita State Friday at noon in the quarterfinals. USF ended the regular season Saturday against Wichita State and fell 80-63 to the Shockers. Junior center Michael Durr (Atlanta, Ga.) scored a career-high 18 points and added nine rebounds for the Bulls. Durr also sunk a career-best two three-pointers and was 4-for-4 from the free throw line. Junior Prince Oduro (Toronto, Ontario) added eighth points, five rebounds and two blocks off the bench. USF senior guard David Collins (Youngstown, Ohio) paces the offense with 12.2 points per game while shooting 42.8 percent from the field and 38.6 from three-point range. Junior Alexis Yetna (Paris, France) adds 9.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, while Durr tops USF and ranks fourth in the conference with 7.3 rebounds per game. USF AND TEMPLE USF and Temple will meet on the hardwood for the 17th time in school history when the two teams battle on Thursday. The Owls own a 12-4 lead in the all-time series that dates back to the 2011-12 season. USF is 0-1 all-time in the AAC Tournament against Temple, as the Owls posted a 79-62 win in 2016 in Orlando. USF and Temple met twice already this season with each team winning on the other's team home floor. In the most recent game, Temple turned in a 65-47 win in Tampa behind 22 points, six rebounds and four assists from Khalif Battle. Justin Brown led USF with 16 points and six rebounds. USF AND THE AAC TOURNAMENT USF enters play Thursday against Temple with a 1-6 all-time record in games played in the American Athletic Conference Tournament. The Bulls only win in tournament play came in 2016 when USF defeated East Carolina 71-66 in the opening round in Hartford, Conn. Last season, USF was the No. 9 seed and was scheduled to play rival and eighth-seeded UCF in the first round. The Bulls and Knights arrived at the Dickies Arena for warm-ups and were informed the tournament had been canceled due to Covid-19. The last time USF played at the conference tournament, the Bulls fell, 80-73, to UConn in the first round in Memphis despite 19 points and seven assists from Laquincy Rideau. USF will open play Thursday with its highest seed ever in the AAC Tournament. WHEN THE LIGHTS GET BRIGHT USF senior guard David Collins has enjoyed a great deal of success when playing in the American Athletic Conference Tournament. In fact, Collins enters play Thursday against Temple averaging 22.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game in two career games in the tournament. In addition, Collins is also shooting 60.7 percent (17-for-28) from the field and 57.1 percent (4-for-7) from three-point range in tournament play. DIAPER DANDY USF point guard Caleb Murphy earned a spot on The American All-Freshman Team on Wednesday after a season that saw the rookie average 8.8 points and 2.8 assists per game. Murphy started 18 of the 19 games he appeared in and turned in eight games of double digits, which included scoring 20 points earlier this season at Memphis. Murphy becomes the xx player in school history named to the league's All-Freshman team, joining David Collins (2018), John Egbunu (2014), Jahmal McMurray (2016) Chris Perry (2014) and Alexis Yetna (2019). SIX MORE TO GO USF senior guard David Collins enters play Thursday against Temple needing six more rebounds to reach 400 for his career. Should Collins grab six boards against the Owls, he would become the only player in school history to have at 1,500 points, 400 rebounds, 300 assists and 150 steals in a career. Collins currently has 1,510 points, 394 rebounds, 304 assists and 184 steals in his four years with the Bulls. PERFECTING HIS CRAFT USF junior center Michael Durr made all four of his free throw attempts on Saturday against Wichita State and is now shooting 78.8 percent from the charity stripe. Durr has consistently improved his free throw percentage each year and his turned himself into one of the Bulls' most reliable free throw shooters. Durr shot 53.6 percent from the stripe as a freshman, 63.3 percent as a junior and now ranks third on the team as a junior with his current percentage of 78.8 percent. In addition, Durr ranks eighth in The American in free throw percentage. CLIMBING THE CHARTS USF senior guard Justin Brown played in his 121st career game for the Bulls on Saturday against Wichita State. Brown enters play Thursday against Temple tied fourth all-time at USF in games played. Should Brown play against the Owls, he will move in to a tie for third all-time at USF. Fellow senior David Collins has played in 114 career games and will move into ninth place should he play on Thursday against the Owls. THIRTY-TWO IS TRUE The USF men's basketball team went 32 days in between games due to Covid-19 protocols within the program. The Bulls played their 12th game of the year Jan. 9 at East Carolina and turned in a 69-63 victory over the Pirates. It wouldn't be until Feb. 10 that USF would resume games with a matchup against No. 7 Houston at the Yuengling Center. During the layoff, the Bulls had seven consecutive games postponed and only had two full practices that included all 13 players.
