Bulls coach Strong fired after three seasons

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The USF Bulls have made a coaching change, according to the USA Today. Charlie Strong will not return for his fourth season.

The program lost 14 of its last 18 games under Strong. The latest loss came against the UCF Knights, 34-7, on Black Friday.

Strong’s final campaign ended with a 4-8 record. This is the first time since the 2014 season that the team failed to make a Bowl game.

He went 21-16 as the Bulls head coach. However, he went 0-6 vs. ranked teams.

In addition, the Bulls were 3-14 vs. teams that finished with a winning record.

In his last two seasons at the school, the program went 11-14. In his first season at the school in 2017, he guided the program to a 10-2 mark.

The 10-2 record was his best record as a head coach since the 2013 season. With the Louisville Cardinals that season, the team went 12-1.

As a college football head coach, he is 74-53. However, in the last six seasons with the Bulls and the Texas Longhorns, he has gone 37-37.

Strong may not be able to find employment right away following his latest departure. He may have to take time away from the game, like other coaches, before getting back into coaching at a later date.
