According to multiple reports...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%2349ers&amp;src=hash">#49ers</a> assistant Paul Wulff confirmed to me he&#39;ll leave season&#39;s end to become UofSouthFlorida OC under Jim Harbaugh protégé Willie Taggart</p>&mdash; Cam Inman (@CamInman) <a href="https://twitter.com/CamInman/statuses/421037359401283585">January 8, 2014</a></blockquote>

And this one from Niners Nation, former Washington State head coach Paul Wulff will be the new offensive coordinator at USF once the San Francisco 49ers season is over. Wulff was an offensive lineman for the Cougars in the late 80's returning to his alma mater as head coach in 2008 following eight seasons as the head coach at Eastern Washington.

Wulff compiled a 9-40 record in Pullman, and was fired in November of 2011 after four seasons. For the last two years he's been the senior offensive assistant for the Niners, and part of the staff that's seen Colin Kaepernick emerge as a force at quarterback.

We'll have more on this later and as soon as we get confirmation, but I wouldn't expect Wulff to be able to help much in recruiting before National Signing Day. By NCAA rule he wouldn't be able to take the mandatory recruiting test before joining the Bulls staff officially, and he might be busy preparing for a Super Bowl run. Let's hope that some recruits might be interested in playing for a coach that's got some NFL experience with a successful team.

Also previously Willie Taggart has said he'll keep the play calling duties as head coach... but he also said he didn't expect any staff changes after the season either. We'll double check to see who will be the projected play caller as soon as we can.

UPDATE: Interesting Twitter back and forth between our own @ChuckyCrater and @BrianMFloyd of Coug Center, SBNation's Wazzu blog:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/chuckycrater">@chuckycrater</a> pretty much. I couldn&#39;t even tell you what he&#39;d run.
