Football Scoop is reporting that USF running back coach Pat White is no longer a part of the USF football coaching staff.

The Daily Stampede reached out to USF officials again Monday night, and as of 6:57 p.m. were told “No changes to the coaching staff to report at this time.”

TDS has followed up to ask USF if Football Scoop is wrong, and have not heard back.

White, who was a star quarterback at West Virginia and rival to USF during the hay day of the Big East, was officially brought on board last January 2nd.

After a year in the Green and Gold, White has been relieved of his duties as running back’s coach. Prior to coming to USF, White was the quarterbacks coach at Alcorn State, where he helped guide back-to-back SWAC Offensive Player of the Year with two different quarterbacks, one of whom was Noah Johnson, who came to USF alongside Pat White.

Under the struggles of Jeff Scott’s first season, the running game couldn’t quite get the motor started despite the speed between Johnny Ford, Brian Battie, Kelley Joiner, and Darrian Felix. USF’s offense average 148.3 yards per game, which was 79th in the NCAA this past (covid shortened) season. The offense averaged 3.97 yards per rush, and accounted for 11 rushing touchdowns.

It appears that USF head coach Jeff Scott will need to replace his running backs, and with his ties to the Tampa Bay Area and the ACC, he should have his pick at a replacement coach.
