COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp said co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper is still on staff.
Roper played quarterback and defensive back at Rice, before getting started in his coaching career, which has included stops at Ole Miss, Tennessee and Duke.
Muschamp said “sure,” when asked if he expected Roper to still be on staff for the Outback Bowl against Michigan. Roper will also retain his duties as the play-caller.

This season, South Carolina has averaged 24.1 points per game, which is tied for 98th in the country with Maryland. The Gamecocks 212.9 passing yard average is 79th. On the ground, rushed for 125.25 yards per game, which is 108th.
“We need to be more productive, offensively,” Muschamp said. “There’s no doubt about that and I think that’d be the first thing he’d tell you as well.”
Roper was out recruiting last week for the Gamecocks. One of his stops was in the Charleston area, to meet with 4-star quarterback commitment Dakereon Joyner, who will enroll at the school in January.
South Carolina coaches will remain on the road for the next two weeks, before the Dec. 20-22 signing period.
