Gamecocks' reportedly to hire new assistant from a division rival
New South Carolina coach Shane Beamer is beginning to build his staff with the Gamecocks and has reportedly made a hire to coach the offensive line.
Tennessee offensive line coach Will Friend, who has spent the last three seasons in Knoxville on Jeremy Pruitt’s staff, is expected to join the Gamecocks, sources told Football Scoop. It is unclear if interim coach and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo would remain on staff, but he coached with Friend at Colorado State and Georgia. Bobo signed a two-year deal worth $1.2 million per last December and has one year remaining on his deal.
