Report: Auburn DC “getting consideration” for South Carolina opening
Could Will Muschamp be in line for his third different SEC position in as many years?
The Auburn defensive coordinator and former Florida coach is getting consideration to be South Carolina’s next coach, according to FoxSports.com’s Bruce Feldman.
Muschamp and Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart are two SEC assistant coaches rumored to be in the mix for the Gamecocks’ vacancy.
Muschamp has led Auburn to the No. 90-ranked defense in the country in total yards allowed this season.
Muschamp served as Florida’s coach from 2011-14 and has 13 years experience coaching in the SEC. Muschamp finished with a 28-21 mark at Florida, including a first-place finish in the SEC East in 2012. That season, the Gators defense ranked No. 5 in both total defense and scoring defense.
