The Bulls also announced the addition of Mike Canales to coach Jim Leavitt's staff as receivers coach. Meanwhile, defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Wally Burnham was given the additional title of associate head coach.

McCarney coached Iowa State from 1995-2006, taking the Cyclones to five bowl games during a six-year stretch. Canales was USF's first offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and returns to the Bulls after stints with North Carolina State, the New York Jets and Arizona, where he worked the past three seasons as the Wildcats' passing game coordinator.
