Report: Current NFL, former South Carolina assistant a candidate for Gamecocks
Three of the candidates connected to the head coaching job at South Carolina have been SEC defensive coordinators, but a special teams coach from the NFL is also reportedly on the radar.
While appearing on the Paul Finebaum Show, Josh Kendall of The State said Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia remains a candidate for the task of replacing Steve Spurrier.
Bisaccia, 55, spent time on South Carolina’s staff from 1988-1993 before moving onto Clemson and Ole Miss. He’s been in the NFL since 2002 with Tampa Bay, San Diego and Dallas, save for a one-month interlude in 2013 when he was hired to be the special teams coach at Auburn and then released from his contract so he could join the Cowboys in the same capacity.
He’s been a running backs coach or special teams coach for nearly his entire career. Bisaccia was special teams coordinator when Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl in his first season.
