South Florida Bulls VP of Athletics Michael Kelly announced today a two-year extension for football head coach Jeff Scott through the 2026 season.

Scott is 3-18 in two seasons with the Bulls, but has been instrumental in the construction of the USF Football Facility, including the Indoor Performance Facility which is scheduled to be ready for fall camp this season.

While the results on the field have been poor (putting it nicely), Scott has drastically improved the culture around the program since getting to Tampa, and has been rewarded for having to deal with the fallout of the Charlie Strong era.

Scott said after Black Friday he knows it’s not a lifetime contract and that he has to start winning, and the Bulls are primed for a turnaround in year three. USF brought in the No. 1 transfer class per 24/7 Sports.

Contract details were not immediately available. The Daily Stampede requested the contract information on December 3, 2021, and have not received them yet. Scott is scheduled to make $2 million in 2022 under his original contract that ran through the 2024 season.
