  Play for Pay. When asked about his program's name, image and likeness collective that launched last week, USF coach Jeff Scott said, "The No. 1 factor on your future success on bringing in talented players and retaining talented players, the very No. 1 factor is going to be your NIL ability, bottom line. Te third-year Bulls coach finds the Fowler Avenue Collective that critical to the Bulls' long-term success - if not survival. Former Bulls quarterback Matt Grothe - still one of the most popular players in program history - serves as host and emcee for the collective's virtual events. Bulls quarterback Gerry Bohanon, a Baylor transfer vying for the starting job this preseason, has signed up as the collective's first ambassador. "We had two young men that we recruited this spring that chose to go to schools that were one conference below us," Scott said. "And it was because of what they were going to get; they were going to get $2,000 a month from the collective. And that was a conference below us, and we lost them here." - Tampa Tribune

  New USF quarterback Gerry Bohanon already knows the first thing he will do Thursday when he walks into the Bulls' first-team huddle for the first time. He's going to smile. "As a quarterback, when the guys see that poise, that confidence, that smile … I feel like it's a sense of relief," Bohanon said. Bohanon's poise, confidence and, yes, smile, were on full display Wednesday in his first news conference since transferring from Baylor. Seven minutes behind a lectern at media day were enough to see why the Bulls had to take the former Bears passer and why he's a serious threat to unseat Timmy McClain as USF's starter.

He said the right things about wanting to be "the best version of myself every day." He showed passion, describing the chills he felt during Tuesday's team meeting. He talked up the competition among quarterbacks with everything from X's and O's discussions to offseason workouts. He deflected praise and, clearly, believes in himself and the locker room. None of which should surprise coach Jeff Scott. Scott wasn't looking to add a transfer quarterback this offseason and would only pursue a perfect fit - a knowledgeable veteran who has played at a high level and would add immediate leadership without damaging the culture he has spent two years building. "I think adding Gerry to that room has checked all of those boxes," Scott said. - Tampa Tribune

  The latest quarterback derby of the Jeff Scott era likely will be the shortest. During a recent radio interview that originally aired on WDAE, Scott said the plan is for competition to be staged during the first half of fall camp, allowing the starter to then log significant first-team reps heading into the Sept. 3 opener against Brigham Young at Raymond James Stadium. "It's not my intention to really have a quarterback battle that's going to linger on into the season," said Scott, whose team begins practice on Aug. 3. That approach differs significantly from the past two years, when Scott - who has used five starting quarterbacks in his 21-game tenure - made it clear his intention was to identify a clear-cut starter by the first American Athletic Conference game.

This go-round, sophomore left-hander Timmy McClain, who started nine games last season (2,126 total yards, five passing TDs, seven INTs), will be challenged by 6-foot-3 Baylor transfer Gerry Bohanon, who made 12 starts (throwing for 2,200 yards) for the Big 12 champions in 2021. Sophomore Katravis Marsh (two career starts), redshirt freshman Jordan Smith and freshman Byrum Brown are the other scholarship quarterbacks. "We're very excited about Timmy McClain. Timmy's got a great future ahead of him," Scott said. "I think for me, the biggest thing was, we wanted to add some experience to that room, because that room overall is very young; there's a lot of first- and second-year players. And Gerry's a guy that took over last year at Baylor, a team that was coming off a two-win season, and Gerry was able to lead them on to a Big 12 championship." - Tampa Tribune

  USF fifth-year senior safety Vincent "Smoke" Davis, the Bulls' second-leading tackler last season and one of their captains, announced Tuesday he must give up football for the time being due to a neck injury. "At this moment, it is not safe for me to continue playing football and potentially risk compromising my long-term health," Davis wrote in a lengthy social-media message. "This news has been extremely difficult to reconcile with as I expected to take the field with my brothers and have a year like no other. I have no doubt that our team is going to do something special this year." Long regarded as one of the defense's fiercest hitters, Davis, 22, made 20 starts over the previous four seasons, totaling 102 tackles the last two years. In 2021, he recorded 68 tackles (including a career-high 13 against Tulsa and eight against Florida) with 1-1/2 tackles for loss, two quarterback hurries and a pass breakup. - Tampa Tribune

  Former Arkansas head coach Chad Morris is returning to college football. Morris has been hired as a senior offensive analyst at South Florida, the program announced Monday. Bulls coach Jeff Scott and Morris worked together at Clemson from 2011-14 when Morris was the offensive coordinator and Scott was a receivers coach. Scott was promoted to co-offensive coordinator when Morris left to coach SMU following the 2014 season.

In a statement, Scott said he is eager to have Morris join a staff that is looking to "employ a fast-paced and exciting offense." On May 13, Morris resigned as head coach at Texas football power Allen High School after one season. He finished the 2021 season with an 11-3 record. Morris was hired to lead Allen on March 31, 2021, after one season as offensive coordinator at Auburn under Gus Malzahn. Morris was fired at Arkansas on Nov. 10, 2019, one day after the Razorbacks' 45-19 home loss to Western Kentucky. He was 4-18 in two seasons as the Razorbacks' head coach, including 0-14 in SEC games. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  USF pulled off its biggest portal coup yet Sunday, landing a commitment from Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon. The starter for 12 games last season, including the Bears' 21-7 Sugar Bowl win against Mississippi, Bohanon made a visit to Tampa this weekend after previously visiting Missouri. He also had generated interest from Oklahoma, Georgia Tech and Liberty. National recruiting analyst Mike Farrell recently named Bohanon the best QB remaining in the portal. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. "It was USF because I believed in Coach (Jeff) Scott, I believe in that staff, I believe in everything they're doing right now," Bohanon, a 6-foot-2 1/2, 220-pound dual threat, said Sunday evening.

Barely used his first three seasons at Baylor, Bohanon broke out in 2021, throwing for 2,200 yards, 18 touchdowns and only seven interceptions while helping lead Baylor to the Big 12 title. An All-Big 12 honorable mention, he didn't throw a pick the first six games of the year. He missed the regular-season finale and Big 12 title game with a hamstring injury, but returned for the Sugar Bowl. Though not 100 percent, he winced his way through the game, totaling 61 yards and two touchdowns in the triumph. - Tampa Tribune

  Former Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon announced that he has committed to USF after entering the transfer portal nearly two weeks ago. Bohanon decided to transfer after Baylor coach Dave Aranda chose sophomore Blake Shapen as the starting quarterback following the end of spring drills. The deadline to enter the transfer portal was May 1 to be eligible for the 2022 season. As a fourth-year junior, Bohanon threw for 2,200 yards and 18 touchdowns while rushing for 323 yards and nine scores in 12 starts for the Bears in 2021. After Bohanon went down with a hamstring injury in the 11th game against Kansas State, Shapen stepped in as the starting quarterback and led the Bears to a regular-season ending win over Texas Tech followed by a win over Oklahoma State in the Big 12 championship game. - Waco Tribune Herald

  Four months to the day when Missouri kicks off the 2022 football season, Tigers coach Eli Drinkwitz walked into Mizzou Softball Stadium on Sunday with a conspicuous guest, former Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon, the third high-profile Power 5 quarterback transfer Drinkwitz has hosted on campus this spring. Maybe third time's a charm? Bohanon entered the NCAA transfer portal last week, fresh off playing a major role in the Bears' 2021 Big 12 championship season. Bohanon started 12 of 14 games for 12-win Baylor last season and missed two games with a hamstring injury, including the Big 12 championship game victory over Oklahoma State. He returned to start the Sugar Bowl win over Ole Miss. - Post-Dispatch
