With a strong 2009-10 season behind the USF Bulls Men's basketball squad, things are looking up for the team under the direction of Stan Heath. It's a big challenge to compete with the basketball programs of the Big East... Which makes the 20-13 record for last season that much more of an accomplishment.
And as a token for this, the University of South Florida extended Heath's contract to 2015, giving him a 33% raise in the deal and the promise for stability for another five years. Heath is 41-45 (.431 winning percentage) in three seasons with South Florida.
Now, the question is, can he take the Bulls to the next level and secure a NCAA Men's Basketball tournament birth?
