Hey guys …

Just going to pass along reports from the Tribune and the Times on the DC job situation at USF. According to the reports, coach Jim Leavitt interviewed two candidates over the weekend.

Nebraska linebackers coach Mike Ekeler could be an option after his interview. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, who led the LSU defense to a national championship in 2007, certainly knows how to bring along a defensive staff.

However, Leavitt may stay close to Big East ties after an interview with former Rutgers secondary coach Chris Demarest. Demarest spent for seasons at Rutgers.

Don’t forget, Leavitt still has to fill the OC role, as well. But all roads point to USF passing game coordinator and receivers coach Mike Canales.

— USF baseball sophomores Stephen Hunt and Derrick Stultz were named to the 2009 Big East/Big Ten Challenge All-Tournament team (Honorable Mention).

Hunt batted .400 in three games, and Stultz earned the Bulls’ only win over the weekend, a 7-5 victory over Purdue on Saturday.

– K.K.
