King stays with Strong

By on January 8, 2017


Tampa, Fla. — University of South Florida head football coach Charlie Strong today announced Shaun King will remain a part of the USF coaching staff as running backs coach.

King, a Bay Area native, joined the USF staff in 2016 and coached the Bulls’ quarterbacks during a record-setting season for the USF offense and American Conference Offensive Player of the Year Quinton Flowers. Sterlin Gilbert, who was named the Bulls’ offensive coordinator earlier in the week, will also coach quarterbacks as he previously has done during successful stops at Texas, Tulsa, Bowling Green and Eastern Illinois.

King, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tulane quarterback, had a very successful first season in collegiate coaching after joining the USF staff in February. King helped guide Flowers to numerous USF season records including marks for total offense (4,337 yards), total touchdowns (42), passing touchdowns (24), rushing yards (1,530) and rushing touchdowns (18). Flowers rushing total of 1,530 yards ranks as the fifth-best mark ever by an FBS quarterback and his 7.73 yards per carry average ranks fourth among all FBS players in 2016.

The USF offense set nearly 40 team and individual records, including team records for total yards (6,650), rushing yards (3,714) and scoring (569 points), while the Bulls posted a school-record 11-2 mark, achieved a Top 25 ranking and won the program’s fifth bowl game.

Season ticket deposits for the 2017 season start at $50 per seat and can be placed at The Bulls will play seven home games in Raymond James Stadium in 2017, hosting notable games vs. Illinois, Houston, Temple, Tulsa and Cincinnati.
