Charlie Strong suspended 11 players permanently before the Gasparilla Bowl for violating team rules. Many were starters or on the 2 deep projected to be starters, next season. Both backup quarterbacks, Brett Kean and Chris Oladokun (who started most of the last 5 regular season games) transferred out along with others.
By my count, with Chris Oladokun's tranfer announcement, Friday, USF has now lost 32 players to graduation, transfer, and permanent suspension. 4 assistant coaches have been fired or have left for better positions, including OC Sterling Gilbert who is now head coach at McNeese State.
After losing 6 games in a row, Charlie is cleaning house. Texas déjà vue all over again?
