USF Fires Basketball Coach Robert McCullum

The USF Bulls have fired basketball coach Robert McCullum after the team finished 12-18 this season, team officials announced Friday afternoon.


"When I stepped back and looked at the entire past four seasons, I did not see enough progress in our program over that time. I felt like we should be further along over the four-year stretch. I would like to thank Robert McCullum for his commitment and service to the University of South Florida and our student-athletes." Director of Athletics Doug Woolard said today.

South Florida lost its last seven games to finish 12-18 this season, and went 40-76 during his four-year tenure as head coach of the Bulls. Coach McCullum led the team to a 4-32 conference record and failed to make the conference tournament during the school's first two seasons in the Big East Conference.

"We will begin a national search immediately to secure the very best coach for the University of South Florida. We will accept applications, recommendations and nominations and include prospecting in the process. We will move as quickly as possible, and we will be as thorough as necessary."
