Potential USF Football Coaching Candidates: Time Share

If it’s good enough for a condo on Tierra Verde, it’s good enough for USF, right?

In every coaching search, there’s always somebody suggesting ridiculous candidates for the job. Instead of waiting for those wack ideas to come to us, we’re being proactive and bringing our wack ideas to you.

Time Share Coaches (current jobs: various)

For a limited time only, come coach USF on your bye week and help the Bulls win a conference championship! No hassle, no commitment!

Sunny Tampa, Florida, has a world-class state university, state-of-the-art football practice facilities, an NFL stadium, and a turnkey football roster just waiting for someone to call the plays. And all just minutes from some of the world’s top beaches.

The best part is, this is a one week per year deal. No coach has to leave his current job. That week off they hate so much can now be spent coaching the USF Bulls, which come complete with position coaches, a defensive coordinator, and not one, but TWO offensive coordinators.

This offer is limited to only the most elite coaches around. Jim Harbaugh should jump on the weekly merry-go-round and see if anyone really does have it better than he does. Tampa Bay’s golf courses alone should be enough to get a visit from Dabo Swinney. Urban Meyer can now pop in to Ray Jay and win a game before setting off on his next cruise. David Shaw can even come on down when he gets tired of football’s most boring offense. And just think of what spending a Sunday on Clearwater Beach after a satisfying win could do for Mike Gundy’s personality.

It’s a perfect fit for USF, too. Why pay for all of the expenses and upkeep of a multi-year contract with a single head coach when you could pay a guest coach by the week? No more outrageous buyouts dragging down the athletic budget, either. This idea is exciting for the fans and financially responsible. What’s not to like?
