Former Georgia QB added to the Gamecock coaching staff. Bobby Bentley changes roles
Jan. 09, 2020, | GCF Staff Report
After Mike Bobo was hired as the Gamecock offensive coordinator, the buzz was Bobo might try to bring on his former assistant and quarterback Joe Cox. On Thursday, Will Muschamp announced how that will happen.
Cox will join the staff as tight ends coach, a role he held at one point with Colorado State. Bobby Bentley will move to coach quarterbacks under Bobo, and defensive assistant Kyle Krantz will join the team in an off-field role. Cox worked with tight ends and wide receivers in his time in Fort Collins. He played quarterback for Bobo at Georgia, starting in the 2009 season.
Bentley was long regarded as a quarterbacks guy through a highly successful high school coaching career. His son, Jake, started for three seasons for the Gamecocks. Krantz was promoted to the 10th assistant spot from an off-field role in January of 2018. He worked with nickels and helped with the secondary.
