Get behind the Jeff Scott hire

Recommended Posts

I like the hire. The only "concern" is the rumor that he was not the playcaller for Clemson, so not sure what to make of it. But honestly, a guy WANTING to come to USF is worth a lot more than people give it credit for. I mean, isn't that why we wanted CJL back? Someone who actually wants to coach here? 

After I thought about that, I kinda started leaning the other way.  Scott was more the program "manager" then while Elliott was the playcaller.  As far as experience for a head coach, thats probably more beneficial then the gameday play calling experience (as long as he brings in a good OC that is).  I think his dad coming along is another nice little cherry on top of this hire.  Brings a ton of experience to help mentor his son on being a first time head coach.

HAHA fair enough. I guess I was just excited to put on my first post. I've witnessed people get picked apart on here so wanted to make sure I was clear in my thoughts.

New member here and while I've visited and read the board for a long time, and have seen what I call "TheBullspen Grumpy Old Men",  I'm still shocked at some of the negativity around Jeff Scott. If you look around the Twitterverse and fansites, this guy is at the onset, a great hire. Clemson insiders and fans alike are lauding this hire for us if it is indeed what unfolds. 

For everyone pining for Leavitt, stop and go get some help. You all sound like jilted lovers who just can't seem to get over that first love. As a kid, going to USF games, I was in awe of The Jim and how he built this program. His passion on the sidelines is what made me fall in love with USF Football and later attend and graduate from USF. As much as we'd all like to dream of this triumphant return and applaud his 8-9 win seasons, it wasn't going to happen. That ship has sailed and the sooner we as fanbase move on, the better. 

My point is, lets get behind the new leader. All we can do as fans is show the new HC that we're ready to support.

And for anyone trashing the fact that Scott has never been a HC, so what?! A lot of coaches who came into programs and found abundant success had never been HC's before. It's a silly way of measuring what you think will be his future success. The guy is coming from a 1st class program, mentored by a FL football family and groomed under Dabo, recruits FL, AND is an offensive-minded coach. LOL, the guy literally checks all the boxes.

Also of note, you know this guy wants to make a mark and I'd be willing to bet he won't be outworked when it comes to shmoozing donors and injecting life into this program we all love.

Thanks for having me. Go Bulls! 

When Scott is actually is announced, I see him in green and gold and have confirmation that the contract is signed (i'm looking at you Taggart) then I'll be 100% behind him.

Ya, Scott and USF probably sign their contracts, which is why there has been no meeting or official announcement yet.

I realize we seem to complain a lot on here, but I think once a hire is announced, the majority of fans will be on board.

If he doesn't run the spread I'm not interested.
