Holtz lands at Louisiana Tech

On the day he hired Skip Holtz as head football coach, University of South Florida athletic director Doug Woolard said “for whatever reason, it just didn’t work out here.’‘
“I thought he was a good football coach when we hired him and I think he’s going to continue to be a good football coach,’’ Woolard said.
Holtz will get his next opportunity at Louisiana Tech, where he’s scheduled to be introduced Friday, according to multiple media reports.
Holtz was 16-21 in three seasons at USF, where the wheels came off in 2012. The Bulls were picked for second in the Big East Conference’s preseason poll, but finished 3-9 overall and 1-6 in the league. Louisiana Tech is Holtz’s fourth stop as a head coach, along with Connecticut, East Carolina and USF. Holtz received a $2.5-million buyout after his firing, payable in $500,000 annual installments.
Only Larry Scott was retained on the staff of new USF coach Willie Taggart, so you can expect many former Bulls coaches to follow Holtz to LaTech.
Senior LB Sam Barrington and sophomore WR Andre Davis were among the USF players who congratulated Holtz on his new job, via Twitter.
