USF strength and conditioning coach Hans Straub has resigned after sending a tweet over the weekend criticizing former Bulls defensive end and San Francisco 49ers fifth-round draft pick Aaron Lynch.
"USF Athletics has high expectations for each and every student-athlete, coach and staff member," Bulls athletic director Mark Harlan said in a statement.
"To that end, I have accepted the resignation of Hans Straub from the position of head strength and conditioning coach.
Lynch was named an All-American at Notre Dame in 2011, but sat out 2012 after transferring to USF and finished with six sacks in 2013.
Lynch was recommended to the 49ers and Jim Harbaugh by Bulls coach Willie Taggart, who played for Harbaugh's father Jack at Western Kentucky.
