South Florida special teams coordinator shows off matte green and gold chrome helmets for 2014 (Photo)

Could South Florida be joining the matte and chrome helmet craze in 2014?

USF special teams coordinator Stu Holt tweeted a picture of two different Bulls helmets. One is a matte green helmet with an oversized gold chrome logo and the other is a gold chrome helmet with a standard-sized green logo.

In 2013, USF wore four different helmets. The primaries were a white one with a green logo and a gold one with a green logo. The team also wore special patriotic helmets against Memphis in November and in September against Miami, USF wore a green helmet with a gold logo.

If the Bulls keep all of last year's helmets and add the two new ones to the rotation, that's six helmets for the upcoming season. A number that's triple the 2013 win total of South Florida. The Bulls were 2-10 last season.

Will the new lids help woo recruits to USF? It's certainly what the school would like. Though we're going to guess winning would help a little more. Baylor and Oregon's flash work well because of the programs' recent success. South Florida's may prove ineffective without more wins.
