Marcus Lattimore is pondering walking away from football after he was unable to get his knee to respond.
If Lattimore ultimately does decide playing football isn’t for him anymore, he can always return to the place where he gave up so much.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said Tuesday that Lattimore, a former Gamecocks star whose gutty returns from two serious knee injuries likely cost him an NFL career, could find a home of some kind in the South Carolina athletic department.
“I’m pretty positive that the president or the A.D. or me or somebody could hire him at USC,” Spurrier said, according Josh Kendall.

Lattimore rushed for 2,677 yards over three seasons at South Carolina, but suffered season-ending knee injuries in each of his last two years there.
He also reportedly has a nice insurance policy to fall back on.
