Kyle Krantz back on the sidelines as new special team’s coordinator and assistant defensive backs coach

Jan. 17, 2020, | GCF Staff Report

Kyle Krantz is back on the sideline after a very brief period off.

Krantz, who was pushed into an off-field role for the Gamecocks earlier this offseason due to a staff shake-up, will once again become an assistant coach after the departure of Coleman Hutzler, head coach Will Muschamp announced Friday.

In his new role, Muschamp announced in a statement Friday, Krantz will serve as special team’s coordinator and assistant defensive backs coach, helping defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson. As a result, Muschamp will coach inside linebackers, a shift away from his usual role with the defensive backs. Assistants Mike Peterson and John Scott Jr. will continue to coach outside linebackers and defensive linemen, respectively.

Krantz has been at South Carolina for four seasons now he first served as analyst for the defense, not coaching for two seasons. When the NCAA approved a 10th on-field assistant in 2018, he was promoted and assisted Hutzler on special teams while also coaching nickelbacks and SAM linebackers.

Coach Muschamp Statement;  “After interviewing multiple people for the position, I determined Kyle is the best fit for our staff,” Muschamp in a statement. “Kyle has assisted with our special teams for the past four years, including on the field in each of the past two seasons. He has done much of the legwork and game planning for those units, and can also bring some new ideas to that facet of the game. Having Kyle take over the coordinator duties will also make for a seamless transition for our players.”
