  3. Report: South Carolina has interviewed 2nd candidate for head coaching job 11/25/2020 South Carolina has reportedly interviewed its second candidate for the head coaching job. SportsTalk South Carolina reported via Twitter that Louisiana head coach Billy Napier is the second candidate to be interviewed. “Per a source, Gamecocks have interviewed Louisiana coach Billy Napier,” the tweet reads. “The source said the interview was conducted via Zoom as Napier is dealing with Covid after testing positive.” SportsTalk also acknowledged a report from The Athletic that Coastal Carolina coach Jamey Chadwell was the first candidate interviewed. Napier has long been rumored to be a top candidate for the job for multiple reasons. The 41-year old has numerous ties to the Palmetto State as a former Furman quarterback a coach at Clemson and South Carolina State. After playing for Furman from 1999-2002, Napier became a Clemson grad assistant in 2003, a position he also held for the 2004 season. He left Clemson for one season to be South Carolina State’s quarterbacks coach in 2005. Napier returned to Clemson in 2006 as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator, positions he held until Tommy Bowden’s resignation in 2008. When Dabo Swinney took over as interim head coach, Napier was named quarterbacks coach and assisted Swinney with play-calling duties. Napier was then Swinney’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the 2009 and ’10 seasons. Napier also has SEC experience as an assistant coach. He was fired as Clemson’s offensive coordinator after the 2010 season and was one of the first coaches to land at Alabama in an analyst role. After being an Alabama analyst in 2011, Napier followed Jim McElwain to Colorado State as assistant head coach and QB coach in 2012. He returned to Alabama in 2013, joining Saban’s staff as wide receivers coach, a position he held through 2016. Napier was Arizona State’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2017 before taking the Louisiana head coaching job. At Louisiana, he is 25-11, leading the Ragin Cajuns to back-to-back bowl games. Louisiana is currently 7-1 on the season.
  4. South Carolina suffers 5th decommitment since Will Muschamp firing, this time a defensive end out of Virginia 11/25/2020 Another day and another decommitment for South Carolina since the Will Muschamp firing. This time, the Gamecocks lost defensive end George Wilson out of Virginia Beach, Virginia (Green Run). When Wilson committed to South Carolina five months ago, he was South Carolina’s highest-rated 2021 commitment. When he committed Wilson was listed at 6-5, 214 pounds and rated the No. 9 recruit in Virginia and No. 23 weak-side defensive end in the class of 2021 on the 247Sports Composite. “This has been a tough decision, and not an easy one to make,” Wilson shared on Instagram. “But as it gets closer and closer, and talking it over with my family, as well as taking time out for myself, I’ve decided to decommit from the University of South Carolina.” Wilson added that he plans to sign in the December early signing period. He chose South Carolina over 17 other offers including Ole Miss and Tennessee. Arizona State, North Carolina and Penn State joined the Gamecocks in his final four. Since Muschamp was fired, South Carolina has also lost safety Jayden Johnson, wide receivers Rodarius Thomas and Simeon Price, and safety Bryce Steele.
  5. (Coaching search updates for November 25th) Looks like the spitball for Louisville coach Scott Satterfield can be scraped off the wall and tossed into the garbage. Apparently responding to a report by Josh Kendall in The Athletic Tuesday night that he would be interviewed by the Gamecocks after Thanksgiving, Satterfield issued a statement that seems to indicate he is staying put with the Cardinals. Satterfield put his message out on his Twitter: Kendall also reported the Gamecocks had interviewed Coastal Carolina coach Jamey Chadwell. Kendall did not cite a specific date for the interview. Reached by text for confirmation Tuesday night, Chadwell replied as if he were being asked if he interviewed on Tuesday. “Lol I have been at practice and we are watching video right now. Not true. I was here all day.” Asked if he had interviewed any other day over the last week with the Gamecocks, Chadwell did not respond. Coastal AD Matt Hogue said he had not been contacted by USC regarding permission to talk with his coach, but that practice is rarely, if ever, followed these days. Kendall also reported Oklahoma coach Shane Beamer will interview after Thanksgiving, something that has been expected since the beginning of the search. We would also expect Louisiana coach Billy Napier to have an in person interview once he’s recovered from his bout with Covid. Army coach Jeff Monken, who was hired by Caslen at West Point, and Liberty coach Hugh Freeze are two others who could be in line for interviews. A source tells us Las Vegas Raiders assistant head coach Rich Bisaccia has had conversations with people around the program about the job, but not with the decision makers at this point. The source said Bisaccia craves the USC job and feels like he would strong impress Ray Tanner and Bob Caslen if he could get his plan in front of them.
  6. Report: South Carolina to meet with Beamer, Satterfield for HC vacancy 11/24/2020 South Carolina's search for a new head coach is heating up. The Gamecocks have scheduled in-person interviews with Oklahoma assistant Shane Beamer and Louisville bench boss Scott Satterfield, a source told Josh Kendall of The Athletic. Beamer is in his third season with the Sooners. He appears to have the most momentum for the position, Kendall notes. Beamer's interview is reportedly believed to be scheduled for Friday. (READ MORE)
  7. Report: South Carolina to meet with Beamer, Satterfield for HC vacancy 11/24/2020 South Carolina's search for a new head coach is heating up. The Gamecocks have scheduled in-person interviews with Oklahoma assistant Shane Beamer and Louisville bench boss Scott Satterfield, a source told Josh Kendall of The Athletic. Beamer is in his third season with the Sooners. He appears to have the most momentum for the position, Kendall notes. Beamer's interview is reportedly believed to be scheduled for Friday. Satterfield is in his second campaign with the Cardinals. He posted a 51-24 record at Appalachian State from 2014-18 and is 11-11 at Louisville since 2019. South Carolina has already met face-to-face with Coastal Carolina head coach Jamey Chadwell, according to Kendall. Chadwell's Chanticleers are 8-0 this season and rank No. 20 on the latest CFP Top 25. Army's Jeff Monken, Louisiana-Lafayette's Billy Napier, and Liberty's Hugh Freeze have all spoken with Gamecocks officials on the phone, though it's reportedly unclear if any of them will have an in-person interview. Last week, Freeze said he "won't even entertain" potential job offers with the Flames off to an 8-1 start. The Gamecocks, who became the first Power 5 school to part ways with its head coach this season after firing Will Muschamp, are expected to name their new bench boss before the beginning of the early signing period Dec. 16. South Carolina suffered a 17-10 loss to Missouri last week in its first game without Muschamp. The 2-6 Gamecocks are currently on a four-game skid.
  8. But anyhow think we will have a coach by next week could maybe go into the next weekend.
  9. Yes Dec 16 if anyone is left to sign lost 3 today for total of 4 leaving 12 still committed. Was going to put all the commits on our recruiting board but will wat till Dec. 16 might only be an handful by then. To see who they are just go to the recruiting forum.
  10. Luke Doty describes where he developed his high-energy approach, admits sliding is a point of emphasis 11/24/2020 Freshman QB Luke Doty got his first extended action of the season last week in the near-comeback against Missouri, and he’s expected to be in the mix this week. Interim coach Mike Bobo said South Carolina has decided on a quarterback, but will not announce it publicly until Saturday. But Doty met with the media on Tuesday and shared what he’s learned about adjusting to college football, and where his high-energy nature comes from. Doty said sliding was a point of emphasis at Tuesday’s practice since his playing style is to scramble for additional yards. “Protecting your body and making the plays you need to make when you need to make them,” Doty said. “But the main thing is just protecting your body, slide, get out of bounds. But that’s the most important thing.” Teammates have discussed that Doty has brought a lot of energy to practice and games. “I think I’ve always approached the game with that mindset, just to go out there and bring as much energy as I can,” Doty said. “I think it goes back to playing soccer with my dad, when my dad was a coach when I was little. He’s always start practice by just saying, ‘Have fun.’ And I think that’s definitely carried over obviously from high school, from little leagues to where I am now. Just to go out there and bring a lot of energy to the practice field no matter what’s going on, and bring a lot of energy to the game field on Saturdays. I think everybody responds well to that, and it certainly showed today. We had a really good practice and everybody was really juiced up and just ready to work.”
  11. Safety out of Georgia becomes 4th decommitment in recent days at South Carolina 11/ 24/2020 A safety out of Cedartown, Georgia became the latest decommitment for the South Carolina recruiting class. Jayden Johnson is a 3-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite, and is the No. 40th athlete in the country, and the No. 46 player in Georgia. Johnson has a reported 19 offers, including Ole Miss and Arkansas. While he was listed as an athlete, Johnson could’ve played on the defensive side of the ball for the Gamecocks. Johnson is the fourth recruit to leave the Gamecocks’ recruiting class following wide receivers Rodarius Thomas and Simeon Price, and safety Bryce Steele. That leaves the program with 12 commits in the 2021 class. Johnson’s announcement came less than an hour after Steele backed off his commitment. When the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder committed to South Carolina, the Gamecocks beat out Arkansas, Georgia Tech and Memphis. Johnson thanked former coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson, the other commits and the academic staff at South Carolina.
  12. South Carolina suffers third decommitment in a week, this time from safety out of North Carolina 11/24/2020 South Carolina has lost its third commitment of this recruiting class since coach Will Muschamp was fired last week. The latest loss is Bryce Steele, a 3-star recruit out of Raleigh, North Carolina (Millbrook), who committed to the Gamecocks in April. He thanked the coaching staff for the opportunity, but said it is, “the best decision for me at this time.” Steele has a reported 16 offers, including Kentucky, and several ACC and Big Ten teams. Steele, at 6-foot-1 and 207 pounds, is listed as a S/LB and ranked the No. 17 inside linebacker in the country, and the No. 20 player in the state of North Carolina, according to the 247Sports Composite. The Gamecocks already had decommitments from wide receivers Rodarius Thomas and Simeon Price. Earlier this month, Steele told 247Sports, “Me and my family talked about it, and as of now I am still committed to South Carolina,” Steele told 247Sports on Nov. 16. “I am not going to go out and say I am going to decommit until I find out who the next head coach is going to be. As of right now I am just waiting for them to hire someone new.”
  13. Agree I was told the Pres. is in charge but Tanner is the front man looking like the fearless leader.
  14. Coach Mike Bobo said on his radio show tonight TE Nick Muse did not practice Tuesday morning and is questionable with a rib injury.
