Coach McCarney molded the Cyclones into a respectable, mid-level Big 12 football team, despite having the smallest football budget in the Big 12. On February 6, 2007, McCarney accepted a position as the Defensive Line Coach and Assistant Head Coach at the University of South Florida. On February 8, 2008, McCarney accepted the same position at the University of Florida.
