some of the rumors are too, alot of guys getting their first taste at this level here witha head coach who has never lead a program. Not much experience on the staff so far. I also really hope there is a former head coach on staff other than his father. I love the hire of Scott but am concerened with the staff he is putting together. That could change when the rest is announced.

Great point. I think having a former HC (e.g. Franks) would give Scott someone objective to mentor him and point things out he may be missing. As the HC Scott is going to look at things through a different lens and have learn to give some control to his coaches and that can be tough for a first time HC to do. Having an experienced former HC can help with that part of Scott's development.

Out of the five hires so far, our HC and DC have Florida ties.  I'm not sure that a S&C coach needs to have Florida ties, so that leave two that don't, King, and WRs Coach Dye, who spent time as a

This should make the King fans happy.

When it comes to special teams...not likely. 

For those who were calling for Leavitt’s return because of what he accomplished, this should look familiar. I don’t think you could look at any of his staffs and find much big time experience - aside from Wally Burnham and Carl Franks - especially as a head coach. He did just fine with guys like Rick Kravitz, Mike Canales, Greg Frey, etc.

Fresh start with new coaches he can mold into his way of thinking. not some old timer who is set in his ways. He has been training his entire life to be a head coach and has learned from the best From bowden all the way to Dabo. He doesn't need a mentor.  I like it.

I get Jeff Scott not wanting to hire a bunch of older guys with HC experience. 

If you are in his shoes. 38 years old. First time Head Coach at this level....do you really want a bunch of older former head coaches around? I could see them undermining you the 1st minute they don't agree with one of your decisions. 

I am sure there will be a learning curve.

After the last staff I would gladly trade experience for a young energetic group of up and comers.   We need to get that USF swagger and energy back after CCS killed it...

I would think you balance it a bit. Some young guys and some guys who have faced some of the challanges you are about to face.
