Former Oklahoma WR coach L’Damien Washington departed from Brent Venables’ coaching staff last month to take over as wide receiver coach at Western Kentucky, but now he will take the same position at the University of South Florida.

Washington is headed to Tampa after spending time at Western Kentucky for the last few weeks.


Washington was a member of Brent Venables’ coaching staff last season and helped the Sooners to score 32.9 points per game and averaged 8.14 yards per reception. Washington’s standout member of the wideout room was Marvin Mimms, who caught 54 passes for 1,083 yards and six touchdowns on the season.

Mims averaged just over 20 yards per reception on the year, sixth best in the nation, making him one of the elite deep threats in all of college football before announcing his decision to enter the 2023 NFL Draft.


Washington was one of the Tigers best receivers of all time as a player as he totaled 100 catches for 1,735 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns. In his senior year, ten of Washington’s 15 touchdowns came in 2013 when he helped Missouri win an SEC East Championship.

Washington joins the Bulls coaching ranks after years of successful coaching and should help USF to become one of the prominent units in the AAC.
