CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Florida native and former USF assistant coach Larry Scott has been named the Miami Hurricanes' new tight ends coach, head coach Al Golden announced Monday.

Scott, a native of Sebring, Fla., had spent the previous eight seasons at USF, beginning in 2005 as the director of high school relations. In 2006, he moved to a graduate assistant role before coaching tight ends in 2007-08 and again in 2010-11. Between tight end coaching stints, he coached the offensive line in 2009. Last season, he coached the running backs and became an offensive assistant in 2013.

During his second stint as the Bulls' TE coach, Scott and his group helped USF to its fifth-straight eight-win season, making it one of only 15 programs nationally and one of just 10 in BCS leagues to accomplish the feat.

Scott's biggest impact on USF came in recruiting within Miami-Dade and Broward counties. USF's 2008 class was considered to be among the best in program history until the Bulls' 2009 class was ranked No. 21 nationally.

His coaching career began in the high school ranks as the run game coordinator and offensive line coach at Tampa's Wharton HS from May 2001-August 2001. From there, he was the offensive coordinator and O-line coach from 2001-03 at Freedom HS before returning to his prep alma mater - Sebring HS - in 2004 as an exceptional education teacher and the co-offensive coordinator.

Scott was a three-year letterwinner (1997-99) as an offensive tackle for USF and was a member of the first recruiting class that began practicing in 1996, the year before the first USF football game. He arrived at USF after a successful three-sport career at Sebring High School, where he was a four-year letterwinner for the football team and also earned a pair of varsity letters in baseball as a freshman and sophomore and in wrestling as a junior and senior.

A 2000 graduate from USF with a bachelor's degree in communications, Scott and his wife Shakiera have three children: sons, Larry and Jalen, and daughter Jurnee.
