Before Will Muschamp was even hired to be South Carolina’s football coach, he reached out to Marcus Lattimore about working for him with the Gamecocks.
On Wednesday night, his wish came true.
Lattimore is expected to join Muschamp’s staff, a source told The State’s David Cloninger.
However, Lattimore’s role is not carved out like a typical coach. Instead, he will help the players will life away from football, including academics, much like what he does with the Marcus Lattimore Foundation.
The move is not expected to happen until Lattimore graduates in May 2016.
