There’s only one thing that’s certain right now with “former” offensive coordinator Greg Gregory’s situation: nothing is certain at South Florida.

On Saturday night, local media received a press release that said Gregory had been “released from his duties as offensive coordinator.”

The release continued …

“”Greg is an outstanding coach and I appreciate everything he has done for us.  It is time for our program to move in another direction,” USF coach Jim Leavitt said.

The same was confirmed through the department on Monday that Gregory was not on USF’s staff.

Now, we are getting a different story.

South Florida assistant athletic director Chris Freet confirmed Wednesday that Gregory is still on staff.

“(Gregory) is still an assistant coach but was removed as offensive coordinator,” Freet said.

The St. Petersburgh Times reported Tuesday night that Leavitt immediately released Gregory after he showed interest in the tight ends position at Florida.

“Greg visited with me about the possibility of coaching at another school, and I felt like I had to make a move,” Leavitt told The Times. “I’m not going to have my offensive coordinator out visiting with other schools. If a position coach wants to do that, I don’t have as much a problem.”

The Gators filled that position with former University of Washington assistant Brian White on Wednesday.

Freet said Gregory’s new position has not been decided.

Leavitt still has not been available for comment to The Oracle.
