On Sunday afternoon, USF announced the dismissal of head coach Skip Holtz. That same afternoon, the highest-rated Bulls commit, Asiantii Woulard, decided to publicly de-commit.
"I don't want to go a school and the coaches that recruited me end up not being there," Woulard said. "And the new coach wants to run a new style of offense and I may not be the quarterback that he needs. I de-committed to open everything back up."
It's very early to tell what the USF administration plans to do with the new coaching search. Will the school hire an offense-minded coach or go with someone who has a defensive background?
Woulard said, "USF is still in the mix. I'm just waiting for the dust to settle so I can make a solid decision and see which coaches will be there."
The four-star quarterback plans to wait a couple of weeks before doing anything.
He recently took an official visit to N.C. State, but it let go of Tom O'Brien and hired Dave Doeren.
It seems like Woulard is having bad luck with his top two schools because the coaching turnover is holding up his recruitment.
"I feel like, every time I get comfortable with a certain coach or staff, they end up leaving," Woulard said.
The run of bad luck hasn't stopped with the coaching fallout. Woulard broke his ankle in the last game of the season in early November. He says he is close to returning to full strength.
The talented signal caller hopes the next time he commits to a school it will be his last and that he will do so injury-free. Maybe a fresh start is all Woulard needs.
