Being a parent has its advantages, and South Carolina coach Will Muschamp used one of those perks Sunday.
Muschamp visited the Under Armour camp in Atlanta to see his son Jackson participate. NCAA bylaws prohibit college coaches from attending such camps, but because of his son’s involvement, he is permitted to attend.
Interestingly, Muschamp isn’t even the first coach to use the “fatherhood clause” to visit a high school camp this season. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher attended the Adidas East Coast Invitational, which is one of the best 7-on-7 tournaments in the country, because his son participated. Coincidentally, Muschamp’s and Fisher’s sons play quarterback and will graduate high school in 2020.
Muschamp surely will be watching his son, but he also can see about 150 top recruits in the event. Oh, the perks of fatherhood.
