In a world full of bad news, postponements and seemingly not a lot of hope, USF head coach Jeff Scott shared a piece of news that is sure to put a smile on your face.

He delivered a coronavirus-related message on the heels of Hillsborough County enacting a curfew on Wednesday, explaining the steps the Bulls are taking to continue football operations over the next couple of weeks.

“I hoped you and your loved ones are staying healthy and staying safe,” Scott said in a message released on the USF Football Twitter account. “The last few weeks have been very challenging for us as a university, community and a nation. I know we’ll be united and get through this together.”

He shouted out medical professionals and other public servants that have been working overtime during the COVID-19 crisis and updated the fans on he and his staff have approached the break. USF was supposed to resume spring practice on Mar. 24 after the conclusion of spring break.

“We understand and fully embrace the need to change our plans and lifestyles,” Scott said. “My staff and I are working from home and using technology to meet regularly and communicate with our players on a daily basis.”

Finally, he allowed his four-year-old daughter, Savannah to send a special message to the fan base.

“I’m going to be a big sister,” she said, sitting on mom, Sara’s lap.

“We’re happy to announce that we’re going to be adding a baby boy to our family and the South Florida family this August,” Scott finished.

The 39-year-old already stands as the youngest coach in the American Athletic Conference when he was hired after 12 years as an assistant coach at Clemson with Dabo Swinney. He’s already continuing some of the Clemson family ideals at USF as his father Brad, a coaching veteran in his own right, is Scott’s chief of staff at USF.

Special teams coordinator Daniel Da Prato recently welcomed a baby girl to the world, just short of a month ago. During the first day of fall camp, several other coaches had their children running around and being a part of the practice environment.
