Taggart hires offensive assistant

The South Florida Bulls have hired Tampa (Fla.) Plant head coach Robert Weiner to be its wide reciever coach. News of the hire was first reported by Brighthouse Sports Network and later confirmed by a number of media outlets, including Bulls247.

The hire is a direct reflection of Bulls' head coach Willie Taggart's desire to "build a wall around Tampa" and keep local prospects home. Weiner built one of the top high school programs in the nation and consistently had the Plant Panthers in the mix for a state championship. While at Plant, Weiner produced a number of elite college prospects, most recently QB Aaron Murray (Georgia) and RB James Wilder Jr. (FSU).
