“I am very excited to get out to many of our Florida communities where USF Athletics support is so strong,” Harlan said. “I’ve had some tremendous experiences thus far meeting USF fans, donors, alumni and supporters and their passion for USF Athletics is amazing. It’s a very exciting time for our program. I look forward to spending time with, and our fans meeting, many of the terrific coaches who will help lead us into a very bright future.”
The tour, conducted by the USF Bulls Club, will make stops in Orlando, Polk County, Pinellas County, Sarasota/Manatee and Miami during a Florida swing that begins Tuesday, June 3 at the Grasslands Country Club in Lakeland.
