Suddenly, the college coaching scene has grown very interesting.

One of the highest profile jobs is suddenly vacant, and it may be drawing the interest of one of the University of South Florida's targets.

Skip Holtz, whom USF was courting earlier this week, is rumored to have turned down the USF job and may be a candidate at the University of Tennessee.

One Buc Place in Tampa has produced the name of Rich Bisaccia as a USF candidate, and another man at One Buc, Doug Williams, may have his name in the hat at USF.

Williams has the strong connection to Lee Roy Selmon, his teammate on the great 1979 NFC Central championship team that was a game away from the Super Bowl.

What Williams could bring to USF might be a shot at James Wilder Jr., the all-everything prospect from Plant High School who will be one of the most coveted recruits in all of college football next fall.

Williams recently was given a one-year extension for his position with the Bucs as director of pro personnel.
