South Carolina coach Will Muschamp addressed one of his major shortcomings during a four-year tenure at Florida, and it’s something he vows he won’t do again with the Gamecocks.
In an interview with Gridiron Now’s Tony Barnhart, Muschamp admitted that one of his biggest regrets during his time in Gainesville, Fla., was altering the offensive scheme previously used under Urban Meyer.
“I probably made a mistake at Florida trying to change schematically from what they had done before,” Muschamp told Barnhart. “As a result, we ended up not being very good at anything. These days you just don’t have time to make a lot of changes. You have to adapt to what your kids can do.”
The Gators never finished better than 96th nationally in total offense (in 2014) during Muschamp’s tenure — South Carolina offensive coordinator Kurt Roper held that same title under Muschamp that season — and they finished as low as 115th in 2013.
Muschamp and Roper already have some adapting to do at the most important position on the field: The Gamecocks are in the midst of a wide-open spring quarterback competition that continues to develop by the day.
