South Florida Shows Jim Leavitt The Door

Jim Leavitt has been canned as football coach at the University of South Florida for an incident that occurred during halftime of the USF-Louisville game in October.

He built the program from the ground up. USF first competed as a team in 1997, with Leavitt taking the program to No. 2 in the national polls a couple of years ago. The familiar story of his role in the program comes to a sad end, following allegations of physically harassing a player.

Leavitt denies any wrongdoing and refuses to apologize — which may have been his undoing. He will be missed on the sidelines.
