A Florida judge in Hillsborough County blasted USF head coach Charlie Strong on Wednesday. Judge Margaret Taylor, A USF graduate, expressed her displeasure with two recent incidents involving USF players at a hearing for USF defensive end LaDarrius Jackson, who is charged with sexual battery and false imprisonment after an incident earlier in the week. She said the following in a video of the hearing:
"Coach Strong, if you are listening, in the last couple of months there have been two arrests of your players for very violent felonies. This court, and I'm sure I'm not alone, questions whether you have control over your players. It's fairly clear you do not have control of them off the field, and I guess only time will tell whether you have control over them on the field.
"I would implore you to think long and hard about whether being head coach at USF is a good fit for you before any other members of this community have to suffer at the hands of one of your players."
