USF loses top recruiter McGeoghan

USF has taken a big hit to its coaching staff.

Top recruiter Phil McGeoghan has left to take a job as assistant receivers coach for the Miami Dolphins. Skip Holtz wished McGeoghan well on his Twitter page.

McGeoghan has earned wide praise this week for his efforts on the recruiting trail, including an honorable mention for his efforts from the folks at ESPN Recruiting Nation. He was instrumental in bringing in four-star tight end Sean Price — who had wavered during the last weeks of the process — along with four-star cornerback Chris Bivins and linebacker Tashon Whitehurst, who flipped from Syracuse.

No question coach Holtz must find a top-notch recruiter to help fill the void McGeoghan leaves behind.
