Holtz leaving ECU for South Florida

By  | 

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Skip Holtz is leaving East Carolina to
take over as coach at South Florida.

Team spokesman Tom McClellan says Holtz informed the team of his
decision in a meeting Thursday afternoon.

South Florida fired coach Jim Leavitt earlier this month after a
school investigation concluded he grabbed a player by the throat,
slapped him in the face, then lied about it.
