Google+ hangout with Skip Holtz

Earlier today, South Florida's Skip Holtz broke some major ground using Google+ and their social media platform to field some questions from fans, making him the first FBS head coach to use the platform in that manner.

Fans took the opportunity to ask Skip about everything from his coaching philosophy, to graduating his players, and what the players and coaches are up to over the summer months.

One fan even asked his thoughts on recruiting overseas, to which Holtz responded by saying "Being in the talent rich state of Florida, it's very difficult to pull yourself away from this state because your going to fly over a lot of good football players to get to wherever your going."

The hangout gave fans a unique perspective into Holtz's personality, very similar to what we do with our "Inside Scoop" series. Judging from the Twitter reaction from both the hangout and our "Inside Scoop" series, many more coaches will be looking for more avenues to reach the masses about their program.

Video of the "Hangout" is below. Whether or not you want to listen to the content; you might want to watch a minute or two of the video just to familiarize yourself with the platform.
