Report: South Carolina To Name Will Muschamp Head Coach


Will Muschamp has more than nine-lives — as he’s reportedly set to get his second opportunity to lead a prominent SEC East program.

Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated are reporting “Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp has agreed in principle to be South Carolina’s new head coach,” per their sources.

Muschamp would return to a head-coaching role after one season coaching Auburn’s defense. Under Muschamp, the Tigers improved their yards allowed per play from 5.7 to 5.5 and held opponents to 21 points or fewer five times but went a disappointing 6–6 this season.

Muschamp has always been a popular defensive coordinator hire, but critics point to his record at Florida for four seasons — where he went 28–21, including a 17–15 mark in SEC play.
