I'm afraid we overestimate Leavitt's national value

Which is good, since we'll likely retain him.

Jim did a great job building, from the ground up, the South Florida program. Such a good job he was courted by Bama, KSU and the U. He turned down these overtures to stay at South Florida.

Then Jim was involved in an ugly scandal. An investigation determined he struck a player in the locker room during halftime. Jim claimed he was merely trying "to console" the player. Jim then revealed a major character flaw by trying to obstruct the investigation, including pressuring other players and coaches to change their story.

Of course he was promptly fired.

And he hasn't sniffed a head coaching job since. His only option after his gig with Harbaugh/49ers was to join our moribund program last year. Up to that point there were ZERO calls from ANY D1 program about a head coaching job.

I don't think this years success erases the serious character flaws he demonstrated seven years ago.
