Skip Holtz on the hot seat

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

South Florida Bulls head coach Skip Holtz is planted firmly on the hot seat entering the Bulls' last game of the season against the Pittsburgh Panthers. How hot is his seat?

Skip Holtz has been the head coach of the South Florida Bulls for three seasons. In those three years the Bulls have gone 16-20 overall with a 5-15 record in the Big East, including 3-8 this season while going 1-5 in the Big East. Holtz has one more chance to make a case to stick around in Tampa Bay on Saturday when they play the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Tampa Bay Times writer Gary Shelton says that South Florida athletic director Doug Woolard and university president Judy Genshaft should be guided not by money or by the players, but by a question: is Holtz the man to lead USF into the future?

Currently, Holtz has the fifth-hottest seat in the country according to the website Coacheshotseat.com. The only coaches ahead of him are Randy Edsall of the Maryland Terrapins, Lane Kiffin of the USC Trojans, Charlie Weis of the Kansas Jayhawks and Kirk Ferentz of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

While the Big East continues to get plucked because of realignment, the Bulls are in a position to claim the conference. However for that to happen Woolard needs to be confident that he has the right man for the job.
