Jeff Scott

I told you earlier it looked like there was a lot of validity to the rumors of Scott heading to South Florida. It's gaining steam and it seems like it's simply about signing a contract and doing due diligence.

Any word on if any of the staff will join him?

Ugh. I like Jeff Scott and he's one heck of a recruiter.

Thanks for the update David!!!

When an assistant accepts a HC job somewhere else , it's usually in everyone's best interest to move on once the announcement is made. It's hard to focus on two jobs at the same time and do good with either one if them.

Yep - and your mind is on the future job ...

The biggest part of this is the recruiting.

Jeff is an A+ recruiter w excellent relationships in Florida. I’m hoping Coach Swinney replaces him w a person that has same type relationships in Florida.

Wonder if Brad retires now as well? I’m sure he has helped Jeff over the years in terms of nurturing those relationships throughout Florida.

IMO this is the biggest loss to our staff Dabo has had in his career at Clemson.

Proud of what Jeff accomplished at Clemson and I am sure he will succeed at USF before landing a bigger job.

For what it's worth, Todd Bates has been incredible the last 2 years on the recruiting trails. He was in Florida so he has great contacts there as well.

I think we'll continue to do well. Our biggest thing now is selecting the right individuals to join in as we have more interest that spots.

How will this affect our current recruiting class?***

Slim to none. Guys are coming here for our brand, to play for NCs and our culture. This will affect us down the road but not yet. Just keep winning


Good for him

Hopefully this will resolve quickly one way or the other so we can move forward and start making preparations.

Best of luck to Jeff Scott in everything!

We'll miss any of our dedicated team that seems like family, but that's kinda the idea... grow and make more just like yourself!
Just imagine if every team we played grew and did things the right way like Coach Scott has done under CDS - We'd see great football, but, more importantly, we'd see great men coming out of each program that everyone would be proud to call their son,

Hate to see him go, but I would be shocked if he left before this years run was completed.

Dabo has a special talent for recruiting coaches to Clemson as well as players. It will be interesting to see who he selects to be the next Tiger super coach. Good luck to Scott ... and welcome new guy.


I agree with the poster above

Posted: Dec 8, 2019 9:16 PM
 

If it happens, it’s best to happen now and quickly. We have 2 OC’s and everyone says Elliott mostly calls the plays. Dabo may move some people around internally. Likewise I’m sure USF will want someone to quickly get in place and get on the recruiting trail and get ready for the Spring.

Selfishly I hate to see it too but hard to imagine Sabo letting him stay. Hard to be ALL IN with your mind on your new opportunity. Good luck Jeff!

fall. And, it's a big domino. He is a major recruiter for us, especially in the state of Florida. USF will be getting a fine coach and a finer man. But, In Dabo I Trust. He has had a succession plan in place for at least a couple years, I'll bet.

There won't be any dominos to fall only if you mean the mountains of domino's pizza consumed at our CFP party and the NC party early next year.


Booo! What's wrong with you? You can't report the truth? >:)

Sucks to see Scott go but Streeter's ready

Posted: Dec 8, 2019 9:22 PM
 

He's already been the recruiting coordinator ( Scott's former job ) and we've had some of our best classes ever. Put him on the headsets and let's get it.




Re: Sucks to see Scott go but Streeter's ready

Couldn’t agree more. BIG loss in recruiting, but Streeter is ready. Only question is who coaches the WR’s...

I don't know that he's as effective with management of a program, etc.

Program is bigger than him. We will be ok.

I think he is a good recruiter. His dad is as well. They seem to have a lot of connections still down in FL, and they're just personable people. You're right about the OC to HC thing though. We've seen that go ugly with Pruitt at TN and Morris at Arky. It's a huge jump from co-OC, with guys like DW4, TL, Tee, Justyn, Mike Williams, ETN, and others playing for you, to being The Man. I'm sure he'll do well though. Seems to be a good guy, and he's got a good mentor in Dabo. His Dad will be able to give him some helpful advice too.

Absolutely and utterly ringing with excitement for Jeff and his family. He will do outstanding down there.

Brad Scott is likely to join Jeff and serve as his Woody McCorvey.

The Big question is who is going to coach the wide receivers at WRU?


Re: Jeff Scott


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 7:13 AM
 

I have absolutely no inside information, but Xavier Dye was a grad assistant for several years before joining the staff at WVU last year as WR coach. Given Dabo's penchant for hiring "in-house," I wouldn't be surprised to see XD return to CU. Timing seems right.

If Scott goes to USF when he is recruiting players and comes across a P5 player that does not want to go to a G5 team. Will he refer him to Dabo? Just a thought.

A few years for Jeff Scott at USF and then on to an even better job...FSU or something.

2020 white level member

USF CAN be a destination job - BUT - they gotta get


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 8:54 AM
 

into a Power 5 . . . . . or the whole landscape of college football can change.


They have Power 5 facilities (and are improving them significantly right now) and they have a reasonable (but I really hate it) stadium in using Raymond James . . . . and they have a HUGE alumni base.


Mark it down - Jeff Scott will do extremely well here - as long as he has the support of his family - because it is going to take an enormous effort & time.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

We must retain Streeter. Promote him and let's go.


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 8:39 AM
 

Good luck, Coach Scott. Hope he's wildly successful.

2020 student level member

I don't see that panning out well for him IMO


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 8:48 AM
 

Jeff is a great OC and recruiter.

It's a big step from coordinator to HC. A step that many fall flat on their face making (look no further than Cola for that)


He's about to leave a VERY well paying job with minimal stress for the exact opposite (I don't know the terms of the contract, but he's making bank with Dabo).

I believe this is a leverage tool for more money for him and Tony.

I guess we shall see if I"m wrong or not

2020 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg


I'm guessing he'll make 2 to 3 times more at USF . . .


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 8:55 AM
 

$2.5 to $4 LARGE . . . . to start.


And after 3 years, with some success, will be 25 to 50% more on top of that.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Not sure about that.


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 8:59 AM
 

Strong's contract was 2 mil in year 4. Jeff is already making 1 mil now as an OC with a lot less work.

Maybe he has those aspirations to be a HC. I just think he's in a good spot now to wait until the right job comes up. I don't think USF is the right job.

App state or Memphis would be a great next stop for him, or a crappier D1A if he wants to brand himself as a program builder.

NOT quite - lol . . . .

https://www.tampabay.com/sports/bulls/2019/10/22/usfs-charlie-strong-set-to-make-5-million-this-season/

Strong made $5 mil in 2019 and was set to make $2.6 in 2020 & 2.7 in 2021.


From this link: https://wusfnews.wusf.usf.edu/post/usf-vows-urgency-will-find-best-fit-hiring-charlie-strongs-replacement

"Strong signed a five-year, $9.8 million deal with USF in December 2016 following his firing as head coach at the University of Texas. He made $5 million this season, including a $2.5 million retention bonus, and was set to make $2.6 million in the fourth year of the contract and $2.7 million in the fifth year."



NO DOUBT the HC job is WAY more intense & time consuming & pressure PACKED.


USF has TONS of potential and nearly no history other than the starting of the program by Jim Leavitt - but in no way is Leavitt REVERED . . . . so Jeff can REALLY put HIS stamp on the program.


And his Dad is from Arcadia & went to USF and they KNOW Florida.


And Tampa is an awesome place to live.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

He may get there and do a great job and make a ton of money

I just see the downside weighing heavier than the upside.

But you can bet his dad will be there to help as well.

2020 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg


IF Jeff has his sights on being a HC, I don't see a much


Posted: Dec 9, 2019 9:59 AM
 

better opportunity.

He could go smaller school & build up . . . . if he is really good - might take him 2 to 5 years to get a shot at a Power 6 (not that THAT is really a thing, but that is what the AAC calls themselves) job next.


Here - he steps right in & can really set the standard where there really is no standard yet. In a warm climate, football talent hot bed, near the water (but he may be a mountain guy - who knows), going back to his family's roots kinda place.

I also see his Dad going with him . . . to be close to the grandkids, to help with USF, to go back "home" (although he may not consider the area "home" any more)



Good conversation - HATE it is about us losing Jeff Scott - but still good conversation.
