I would say the exercises you do would be the main thing to worry about. So if you are trying to bulk up make sure you are hitting deads and squats hard. Other than that I don't think it matters too much which days you are workin out diff muscles. I could be wrong though.

Personally, I keep the rep ranges between 8-10 for hypertrophy except for deads/squats which I would do heavier weight. Doesn't matter what muscle you work with what, but I wouldn't work any given muscle twice without a good 3 day break. I don't really keep with schedules though, I just listen to what my body says. You won't be doing any "bulking" unless you're eating enough for it.
Here's an example of my usual routine:
Rest when I feel I need to, workout when I feel I need to.

And, if you are really wanting to try a training system, give this one a try.

Since you are a football player things are completely different when you do workouts. The basic lifts for football are simple but it does change things. In football you want to be explosive, fast, quick, and powerful. Here is an example of a workout program that I did when I was in college, I changed a few things around.
Leg Press 3x8
Bench Press 3x8
Incline DB Press 3x8
Military Press 3x8
Pull Ups 3x failure
Day 3 REST
Front Squat 3x8
Power Clean 3x8
Dead Lift 3x8
Neck and Ab work
The first 2 weeks after your leg workouts you might puke, or possibly take 2 or 3 days to recover, so just go easy at first... make sure you are warming up properly and after each day I would say to do some Wind sprints quick 40 yards, and some other agility drills (ask your coach) You can change this around if you want, this is just an example of something we did back in the day and I have my football players do in the offseason.
