Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

Thank you,

Brad Brad

Top candidates for NEW Athletic director

Recommended Posts

My vote:

Tony Dungy....if we could get him it'd be an outta the park lights out hire.

Likelihood of that?....no idea.

Other top candidates?

Was thinking tony dungy too but he already has obligations. We need someone with experience with ocs. Fau's ocs wasn't bad and minnesotas was what we should strive for.

Totally agree with Higgins!

Not familiar.  Who is he?  Why would he be good?

I don't know who you hire, but at least interview an assistant AD from Baylor who learned firsthand how BU was able to rise from laughingstock of the state of Texas to top shelf in Football, MBB and WBB.

In June of 2004, the Tampa Bay Sports Commission named Rob Higgins as its Executive Director. Higgins primary responsibility is to promote the development of community sports in the Tampa Bay area, as well as leading the Sports Commission as the principal organization that bids on and hosts sports and entertainment events in Tampa Bay and Hillsborough County.

In the nine years Higgins has held his position, Tampa has successfully hosted and/or been awarded the following events: 2007 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament, 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball First and Second Rounds, 2008 NCAA Women’s Final Four, 2008 and 2009 ACC Football Championships, 2009 SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament, 2009 NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship, 2011 NCAA Men’s Basketball  Second and Third Rounds, 2012 NCAA Men’s Frozen Four, and 2015 NCAA Women’s Final Four.

Higgins served on the bid committee which successfully landed the 2009 Super Bowl and the operations committee which handled several event logistics. He has been named to Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 30 under 30 list and the Tampa Bay Times Times has named Higgins as one of the top 10 difference makers in the Tampa Bay area.

Most recently, Higgins was voted as one of the most influential sports figureheads in the history of Tampa Bay, according to CBS Radio.

It would be a non-traditional hire, that is for sure... but he has familiarity - he's a USF alumnus and former assistant athletic director.
