USF Athletic Director Doug Woolard went to his car after a 23-20 loss to rival UCF Friday night and discovered all four of his tires had been slashed.

UCF officials provided him a complimentary car to drive back to Tampa.

UCF Athletic Director Todd Stansbury, who personally returned Woolard's car to him Saturday morning, expressed regret over the apparent vandalism.

“I’m disappointed and embarrassed that his happened at our facility. I’m thankful our friends at Carl Black (Orlando auto dealership) came through with transportation for him to get back home. We always encourage good sportsmanship and responsible behavior and this was neither."

Woolard was very appreciative of the cooperation of the UCF administration and local law enforcement to help get him and his car back to Tampa, adding, "Whether this action is random or targeted, I'm hopeful the UCF police locate the person or persons responsible and hold them accountable for their criminal actions to the full extent of the law."
