Twenty years ago next month, the University of South Florida football team took to the field of Houlihan's Stadium for its first game.

Since that 80-3 trouncing of Kentucky Wesleyan, the enduring question has been if the Bulls would ever play in a stadium on their Tampa campus.

A feasibility study released Tuesday may bring an answer.

While the University of South Florida women's team prepares to play in the NCAA tournament for the third straight season, the men's team has hired its third basketball coach this year.

Just three weeks after hiring new head football coach Charlie Strong, the University of South Florida has fired men's basketball coach, Orlando Antigua.

Antigua was hired in 2014 with much fanfare due to his success recruiting star players as an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky.

Orlando Antigua has had two pretty eventful days.

The assistant coach for the University of Kentucky men's basketball team helped his squad make the Final Four on Sunday.

A day later, he was named head coach of the University of South Florida basketball team.

A formal press conference introducing Antigua is scheduled for Tuesday. No details about his contract have been announced, and it's believed Antigua will stay with Kentucky through next weekend's NCAA Championship in Texas.

USF

Earlier this week, Mark Harlan was named as the new University of South Florida Athletic Director.

One of his first jobs is going to be finding a replacement for men's basketball coach Stan Heath, who was fired just two days after the Bulls season ended with its ninth straight loss.

Saying that "winning everything" is what drives him, new University of South Florida Athletic Director Mark Harlan is promising to hit the ground running.

The 44-year-old, who currently serves as UCLA's Senior Associate Athletic Director, was named USF's A.D. Tuesday.

He takes over a program in which the "marquee sports" - football and men's basketball - have struggled over the last few years. The Bulls football team went 2-10 last season and hasn't been to a bowl game in three seasons, while the men's basketball team enters this week's American Athletic Conference (AAC) tournament as the 10th seed out of 10 teams.

Nevertheless, Harlan called the job "one of the greatest opportunities in college athletics." Speaking to reporters Tuesday, he promised to strive to turn those fortunes around.
