TAMPA’ USF announced Thursday evening it has hired Valdosta (Ga.) State coach and former University of Florida quarterback Kerwin Bell as its new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Specifics of the deal weren’t immediately made available. Blazers offensive line coach Jeremy Darveau, a former quality-control assistant at UF, reportedly also could join Bell in Tampa, but the school hasn’t confirmed it.

Bell, who led Valdosta State to a 14-0 record and Division II national title this past season, replaces Sterlin Gilbert, named coach at I-AA McNeese State in December. Former Bulls offensive line coach Matt Mattox joined Gilbert’s staff as offensive coordinator.
