Will Muschamp added three more assistants to his coaching staff, as he continues to put his familiar touch on the Gamecocks.
Coleman Hutzler was named the special teams coordinator and linebackers coach; Clyde Wrenn was named director of high school relations and assistant coach; and Robbie Liles was promoted to director of player personnel, the university announced Friday.
Hutzler, 31, spent the 2015 season as Boston College’s special teams coordinator and outside linebackers coach. Prior to that, Hutzler enjoyed two stints at Florida — from 2010-11 as assistant linebackers coach and special teams coordinator under then Gators defensive coordinator DJ. Durkin — and again in 2014 coaching special teams and outside linebackers under Muschamp.
“Coleman is a very detailed, high energy coach,” said Muschamp. “He did a great job for us at Florida and had an outstanding year at Boston College under Steve Addazio.”
Wrenn spent the past three years in the development arm of the Gamecocks’ athletics department. He has more than 30 years of combined high school, college and professional coaching experience.
Wrenn spent 11 years at South Carolina as the assistant athletic director from 1993-2004. He also filled the roles of football recruiting and high school relations coordinator.
“Clyde brings tremendous experience working with the high school coaches in the state of South Carolina,” said Muschamp. “He is extremely well thought of throughout Gamecock Nation and will be a valuable asset to our program.”
Liles has been part of the South Carolina football staff for the past 15 years. In 2013, Liles was named to director of recruiting operations. He has also served as the director of high school relations and as a recruiting graduate assistant.
“It was evident in the short time that I’ve been here that Robbie is a valuable part of our staff,” said Muschamp. “He has an outstanding work ethic, is intelligent, has a great understanding of the University, and is well-liked by the high school coaches. It only makes sense to expand his role with the football program.”
