USF receivers coach Phil McGeoghan has interviewed and accepted a job with the Miami Dolphins for a position as the team's assistant receivers coach.

USF has lost one of their young rising stars, as Phil McGeoghan, the Bulls receivers coach for the past three seasons has interviewed with the Miami Dolphins of the NFL and accepted the position as the team's assistant receivers coach.

McGeoghan is interviewing for the job with Wide receiver coach Steve Bush leaving the Miami staff and Assistant wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard leaving to take the WR coaching position with Washington.

Coach McGeoghan joined the Bulls in 2009 under former Head Coaching Jim Leavitt and offensive coordinator Mike Canales.

During his tenor, McGeoghan mentored WR Dontavia Bogan, who had one of the best seasons in USF history with 685 yards and six TDs, good for 2nd on USF all-time list. After graduation, Bogan signed with the 49ers.

In his first season with the Bulls, he coached big play receivers Carlton Mitchell and A.J. Love, who both averaged over 17 yards per catch, with Love's 18.8 ranking third all-time at USF. Mitchell also set the school record for receiving yards with 1,648 and the single season mark with 706. Mitchell left USF early and was drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

McGeoghan has also been a key recruiter for the Bulls, and was instrumental in landing several top recruits in this last class, including, 4-star tight end Sean Price, 4-star WR D'vario Montomery, 3-star CB Chris Bivins and 3-star LB Tashon Whitehurst.

Prior to USF, McGeoghan was a wide receiver at the University of Maine, then played in the NFL for four seasons. He then returned to Maine as an assistant coach overseeing the tight ends and wide receivers. In 2008, he worked as the offensive coordinator for the Naval Academy Prep School.
