He was a great man. For sure.
R.I.P. Lee Roy Selmon — An NLF Hall of Famer and the reason USF has a football team. He served as USF Assistant Athletic Director from 1993 to 2001 and then as Athletic Director until 2004.
“Lee Roy set the stage for class, for academics, and for integrity,” USF Athletic Director Woolard said. “He was a mentor to me after I moved to Tampa, and a friend in every way.”
Under Selmon’s guidance, the USF Bulls joined Conference USA then moved up to the Big East. He died Sunday night after being hospitalized Friday for a stroke.
