He is leaving the Bucs and heading to USF. Bucs pass defense was the worst in the NFL this season so not really a surprise. Wonder if he will be sniffing some recruits up this way.
Not likely. He works his little territories in the mid-south, and not much else.
One thing is certain, he will make some good evaluations and coach them up.
Giving him a natural stomping ground in Florida combined with what he does in Alabama, Georgia, should be a good fit for USF.
I agree with all of this. Great fit.
one thing is for certain...he never stays in one place long and has been all over the map....he must love moving.
We basically pushed him out. He left LSU for the NFL. NFL didn't work out so he stayed in the same city to coach college ball. That is two moves since he moved to Columbia, one of which wasn't his decision and one to jump from college to pro ball. So not sure I'd agree with you.

He was pushed out by Ellis Johnson's arrival as much as anything else. He wasn't Ellis's guy and he lost a good bit of influence over the defense and the AHC title. Wasn't a good fit the two of them together obviously and it seems to have caused problems.
He did well here and he did well at LSU before heading to the NFL. He is a pretty darn good talent scout and developer of DBs. If that is what he is asked to do, I think he will do pretty well.
The key is knowing his talents/role. He is very good at what you suggest, and I hope he's learned he's probably not HC/DC material any longer. I am not his biggest fan because of how his career ended at USC, but there was tension both ways. The presser where SOS called him out after the KY game near-breakdown was absolutely painful to watch...like a bad extension of Judge Smails and Porterhouse.
