It was announced Sunday that Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp will be named South Carolina’s new coach.
The Tigers will now be without one of the more accomplished defensive minds in college football moving forward. And while Muschamp’s departure will almost certainly have an impact on Auburn’s recruiting class, it’ll have no bearing on John Broussard.
The four-star cornerback reaffirmed his loyalty to the Tigers in a recent interview with SEC Country.
“This doesn’t affect my recruitment at all,” said Broussard, the No. 12 cornerback in the country. “(Will) Muschamp is a hell of a coach and I’m happy for him. I understand the business side of this game. We play this game to feed our families. I was looking forward to working with Muschamp, but God has plans for everyone. I just wish Coach Muschamp the very best. Who knows? Maybe later on down the line I will get the chance to get coached by him. I just want the best for him and his family.”
The 6-foot, 164-pound senior from Phenix City, Ala., is rated as the fourth highest-rated prospect on Auburn’s big board, per 247Sports.com.
