On the eve of spring football starting for the South Florida Bulls, they’re going to be down a coach as strength and conditioning coach Trumain Carroll has taken the same job at Kansas State, The Daily Stampede has confirmed.

He's taken another job, should be announced shortly. #USF
Sources: Kansas State is expected to hire Trumain Carroll as its new strength coach. He comes from USF and also brings experience as the the head strength coach at Arkansas and SMU.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) February 22, 2021
While no official announcement has happened from Kansas State, Carroll will leave Tampa after just over a year as the head “Culture Coach”. Carroll previously spent time at Arkansas under former head coach Chad Morris, and before that at SMU with Morris.
Scott will now look to replace the one person who was able to be around more than any other coaches during the offseason.
One option is already on campus. Former USF S&C coach Irele Oderinde is currently serving the strength and conditioning coach for the 13th ranked women’s basketball team.
Oderinde was with the Bulls under former head coach Willie Taggart before going to Oregon with him where Oderinde got into a spot of bother due to multiple players being hospitalized with Rhabdo. Oderinde was suspended for a time before resuming his duties. He also coached at FSU under Taggart.
Former players have already starting to campaign for Oderinde.
