Report: USF Has Fired Jim Leavitt


University of South Florida football coach Jim Leavitt’s tenure with the program is over, FanHouse has learned.

The only coach the Bulls have had in the program’s 13-year history leaves after an investigation that was initiated after a FanHouse report that stated Leavitt grabbed sophomore Joel Miller by the throat and hit the walk-on twice in the face Nov. 21 at halftime of the Louisville game.

More to come I’m sure.

    Here's my take on the firing.
