[dropcap]S[/dropcap]outh Florida running backs coach Larry Scott will be a Hurricane after all. According to the AP, he has accepted the tight ends job at Miami (Fla.).

Scott interviewed with Al Golden last week, but, as we reported Thursday, it appeared that he would remain at USF.

Scott will replace Mario Cristobal, who left last week to become offensive line coach at Alabama.

A member of USF’s original recruiting class in 1996, Scott returned to his alma mater as director of high school operations in 2005. He was a graduate assistant in 2006 before joining the staff full time in 2006. Scott has coached a variety of offensive positions, including tight ends, offensive line and, most recently, running backs.

Scott is considered an ace recruiter in south Florida’s Dade and Broward counties. He was also a potential target to join Jimbo Fisher’s staff at Florida State.

He earned $136,000 last year.
