Paul Wulff Leaves San Francisco 49ers Coaching Staff, Returns To Collegiate Ranks at South Florida


Senior offensive assistant coach Paul Wulff has opted to return to the collegiate ranks, taking a job as offensive coordinator at South Florida.

South Florida coach Willie Taggart announced the hiring on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

Wulff spent two seasons in San Francisco after he was fired as head coach at Washington State, where the Cougars were 9-40 from 2008-11 and never went to a bowl game.

Prior to going to Washington State, Wulff was 53-40 in eight years as head coach at Eastern Washington (2000-07), twice leading the Eagles to the NCAA Division I-AA (later Football Championship Subdivision) quarterfinals.

A graduate of Davis High School, Wulff was an offensive lineman at Washington State from 1986-89 and played two years in the now-defunct World League of American Football for the Raleigh-Durham Skyhawks and New York/New Jersey Knights after being cut in training camp by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent in 1990.

He began his coaching career at Eastern Washington as offensive line coach in 1993, eventually working his way up the ranks to offensive coordinator and head coach.

Wulff will also coach the offensive line at South Florida.
