Former South Carolina running back Brandon Bennett is now the head coach of a high school program in his hometown of Greenville, S.C.
Bennett was announced as the head coach at St. Joseph’s Catholic School on Thursday, according to Fox Carolina.
Bennett spent 10 years in the NFL, largely with the Cincinnati Bengals. He also spent time with the Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins before ended his pro career with the Carolina Panthers in 2005. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards in his NFL career and scored 6 touchdowns.
Bennett led South Carolina in rushing yards in each of his four seasons from 1991-94. He finished his career with 3,055 rushing yards, the second-best total in school history. He holds the single-game rushing record with 278 yards and was inducted in the USC hall of fame in 2004.
His career is most remembered for a leaping touchdown against Georgia in 1993.
Former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore also holds a head coaching job in the state, as he accepted the job at Heathwood Hall in Columbia, S.C., in November.
