The reported frontrunner for the South Carolina job continues to act as such.
Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, who’s reportedly considered the favorite to be the Gamecocks’ next coach, has reached out to former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore about a position on his coaching staff, according to The State’s David Cloninger.
The role was not clearly defined, Cloninger reported, nor was Lattimore’s interest in accepting the position.
However, Muschamp seemingly wants Lattimore more involved with the program.
Previous reports indicated Muschamp also reached out to Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott about taking on the same role at South Carolina.
Muschamp is one of a handful of reported candidates in the mix to replace Steve Spurrier at South Carolina. Other candidates include Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, Cal coach Sonny Dykes, former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley.
Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen, UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt and Dallas Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia have also been linked to the job.
