  1. Looks like a strong possibility that Wolf is heading to Ky. Stoops hints at South Carolina's Eric Wolford as next OL coach: "I have a guy in mind. ... It'll happen" | Kentucky Sports Radio Mark Stoops will now turn his attention to filling out the rest of Kentucky's coaching staff, starting with arguably the biggest remaining vacancy: the offensive line coach kentuckysportsradio.com
  2. AD Ray Tanner on SportsTalk: I think if there are, at least, three SEC teams playing in the New Year's Six Bowl Games, there's a strong possibility we can participate in a bowl game. Who will coach the team on the Gamecocks accepting bowl if if offered? If South Carolina plays in a bowl game, Beamer will not coach in that, which has been the plan all along. It still remains to be seen whether or not the Gamecocks will play in a bowl game. If South Carolina plays in a bowl game, Beamer will not coach in that, which has been the plan all along. It still remains to be seen whether or not the Gamecocks will play in a bowl game. “It kind of starts with how many of our teams are going to be playing up in the New Year’s Six, if you will,” Tanner said. “When I talk about the New Year’s Six, the CFP and New Year’s Day bowls, so if you answer that question, then I would tell you there’s a possibility that we would be playing as well. “You’d probably feel pretty confident about the SEC moving up, what three or four teams?” Tanner added, “That being said, then the likelihood that we would play in a bowl game would be strong.” Between regular season schedules, extra games and conference title matchups, there are still two weekends to go, before all of that can be settled. “We’re certainly not a lock,” Tanner said, “But if we do get those teams up (into the New Year’s Six), then we’ve got a lot of bowl slots that we’re affiliated with in the Southeastern Conference.”

Torrian Gray will mentor the defensive backs. Lindsey, who was born in Cheraw, S.C. and lists Morven, N.C. as his hometown, spent the 2020 season on Lovie Smith's staff at the University of Illinois, coaching defensive ends. He served as the defensive coordinator in the Illini's season finale at Penn State after Smith was relieved of his coaching duties. Under Lindsey's tutelage, Owen Carney Jr. earned second-team All-Big Ten honors after collecting 28 tackles, 7.0 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks in eight games.

"I love that he has ties to the Carolinas - born in South Carolina and raised in North Carolina - and has coached and recruited in this region as well." Lindsey's coaching career began at his alma mater, Chattanooga, where he was an assistant in 2000 and '01 while finishing up his degree. Following graduation, he was named the Mocs' linebackers coach in 2002.

  10. Torrian Gray Named Defensive Backs Coach 1/15/2021 | Football | FROM USC SPORTS | BY GCF STAFF University of South Carolina head football coach Shane Beamer has named Torrian Gray as the Gamecocks' defensive backs coach, it was announced today. Gray, 46, has coached the secondary for 21 years, including 17 at the collegiate level and four in the NFL. He has developed a number of NFL defensive backs, including Brandon Flowers, Kam Chancellor, Kyle Fuller and Kendall Fuller at Virginia Tech and Teez Tabor, Marcus Maye, Quincy Wilson, Duke Dawson and C.J. Henderson at Florida. "I've known Torrian since we played together at Virginia Tech," said Coach Beamer. "First off, he's a great person and an elite defensive backs coach. He has college and NFL experience as both a player and as a coach. Torrian has been part of some great defensive systems at both levels. We worked together for five years at Virginia Tech when Tech was known as "DBU" and a big reason for that was Torrian Gray. He's a great addition to our staff." Gray has spent the past two seasons coaching the cornerbacks at the University of Florida, his second stint with the Gators. In his first year back in Gainesville in 2019, the Gators tied for ninth in the FBS with 16 interceptions on the season. Under Gray's guidance, UF was one of only two FBS teams (FAU) to feature four players with at least three interceptions each. Additionally, Gray guided cornerbacks CJ Henderson (First Team) and Kaiir Elam (Freshmen Team) to All-SEC honors by the league's coaches. Henderson later went on to be the ninth overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. In 2020, Elam earned first-team All-SEC honors. Prior to his stint with the Gators, Gray worked with the defensive backs for the Washington franchise in the NFL. In 2017, his first season in Washington, Gray's defensive backs helped produce the team's strongest season against the pass in nearly a decade. The unit ranked third in the NFL in completion percentage allowed (57.6 percent), the team's best ranking since leading the NFL in the category in 2005 (54.4), while finishing ninth in passing yards allowed per game (213.8, the team's lowest since 2009) and 10th in opponent passer rating (81.0, lowest since 2008). One of his standout performers was former Gamecock D.J. Swearinger. In 2016, Gray served as the defensive backs coach at Florida. Under Gray's guidance, cornerback Teez Tabor earned first-team All-SEC honors from both the Associated Press and the league's coaches while also garnering second-team All-American honors from numerous outlets. Gray also helped guide defensive back Quincy Wilson to second-team All-SEC honors. Prior to his arrival in Gainesville, Gray spent a decade at his alma mater, Virginia Tech, leading some of the nation's best defensive backfields. In his 10 seasons coaching the secondary in Blacksburg under head coach Frank Beamer, his unit allowed just 185.0 passing yards per game and a 106.5 opponent passer rating - both ranked second in the nation over that span. Opposing quarterbacks completed just 50.4 percent of their passes in those 10 seasons, the lowest percentage of any defense in the nation. The Virginia Tech secondary ranked in the top 15 nationally in opponent passer rating eight times in Gray's 10 seasons leading the unit, including three top-five finishes. During Gray's tenure, a total of 11 Hokie defensive backs were selected in the NFL Draft. In 2014, the Hokies had the fourth-best pass defense (189.2 ypg) in the Atlantic Coast Conference despite losing All-American Kendall Fuller early in the season due to injury. His unit allowed opponents to complete just 49.6 percent of their passes, second-best in the conference. In 2006, his first year leading the group, they ranked first in the country in passing yards allowed per game (128.2) and second in opponent passer rating (91.3). Before returning to Virginia Tech, Gray spent two seasons in the NFL as assistant defensive backs coach for the Chicago Bears from 2004-05.

Gray began his coaching career at the University of Maine, serving as defensive backs coach for two seasons from 2000-01. He then spent the 2002-03 seasons as defensive backs coach at the University of Connecticut. During his time with the Huskies, he coached cornerback Justin Perkins, helping him to two all-conference selections and 12 career interceptions. Following a standout career at Kathleen High School in Lakeland, Fla., Gray played collegiately at Virginia Tech and became a three-time all-conference selection. He helped lead the Hokies to a pair of conference titles and was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the second round (49th overall) of the 1997 NFL Draft. He spent three seasons with the Vikings before retiring after a career-ending knee injury in the spring of 2000. A native of Lakeland, Fla., Gray has two daughters, Tori and Lexi.

Luke Day Selected to Lead the Football Strength & Conditioning Program 1/10/2021 | Football | FROM USC SPORTS INFORMATION | GCF STAFF POST University of South Carolina head football coach Shane Beamer has tabbed Luke Day to lead the Gamecocks' strength and conditioning program, it was announced today. Day, who has experience at both the collegiate and professional levels, comes to Carolina after spending the 2020 season as the head strength & conditioning coach at Marshall University, his second stint with the Thundering Herd. Day worked on the staff at the University of Colorado in 2019. Day initially joined the Herd as the head strength and conditioning coach in January of 2016, a position he held for three seasons. He was recommended by Scott Sinclair, Day's predecessor, who in three years transformed the Herd strength and conditioning philosophy during a run of three-straight seasons of 10 or more wins by Coach Doc Holliday's team. Day and Sinclair - who moved from MU to the strength and conditioning director's role at Georgia - previously worked together at UCF under veteran strength coach Ed Ellis. "Luke comes highly recommended from people I trust," said Coach Beamer. "I spoke to a lot of strength coaches about our position and after spending 90 minutes on the phone with him, there was no doubt in my mind he was the best candidate by far. He has a great vision for developing the players, both in strength and conditioning and in the mental aspects, which is critical." Prior to his arrival in Huntington, Day spent one year as an assistant on the Cincinnati Bengals' strength and conditioning staff. Day is a native of Hamilton, Ohio, where he was significantly involved with inner-city ministry for the Hamilton Dream Center. Prior to his year with the Bengals, he spent two years as an assistant in strength and conditioning at UCF, following stints at USF (2012) and Cincinnati (2011-12). He also served as a summer volunteer in strength and conditioning with the New Orleans Saints in 2010. Day graduated from Hamilton High School in 2006 and went to Morehead State, where he played defensive line for two years. He transferred "back home" to Miami (Ohio) and started working as a strength room intern and graduated with a degree in physical education. His first job was designing, developing and implementing a weight room and strength program at Mount Healthy High School in Cincinnati, and through that work he made connections to the University of Cincinnati, where he spent 14 months on the strength and conditioning staff. Day and his wife, Trisha, have a son, Jay and a daughter, Norah.

"I've known Marcus for nearly 20 years since we were graduate assistants together," said Coach Beamer. "He has a brilliant offensive mind and brings experience from both the collegiate and professional levels." "Marcus was instrumental in rebuilding two championship college programs with me at both Temple and Baylor," said Coach Rhule. "His commitment to the student-athlete experience, his innovative mindset, and his unique ability to teach were all unbelievably valuable and why I was so excited to be able to bring him to the Carolina Panthers. I think South Carolina is getting a tremendous offensive mind who will help build them into a perennial contender."

CEO and President Gary Stokan said. "It should be an intriguing matchup with Shane Beamer coaching against his father's old team. I also fully expect Coach Fuente will have his Hokies ready to play against a formidable SEC opponent." The matchup against Virginia Tech will represent South Carolina's first-ever appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game and the Gamecocks will be the seventh different SEC program to play in the game. In 2025, the matchup will represent the SEC's 20th appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, with the conference currently boasting a 13-2 record in the game.

Having been part of this game before, I know it's run in a first-class manner and we're happy to be a part of it." Virginia Tech will be making its third appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. The Hokies fell to Alabama in their previous two appearances when they opened the 2009 and 2013 seasons in Atlanta.

I'm confident we'll see a strong contingent of our fan base cheering as the Hokies play their inaugural game in that facility and visiting the College Football Hall of Fame that weekend. We feel very confident about the strength of our scheduling going forward, as well as its appeal to Tech fans across the country." "Our team always looks forward to the opportunity to play in 'trophy games' and I'm sure our team relish the chance to compete for 'The Old Leather Helmet' trophy against South Carolina in the 2025 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game," Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente said. "I know our players enjoy playing in NFL venues and I'm sure our fans will also appreciate cheering on the Hokies as we square off with an SEC opponent in Mercedes-Benz Stadium." The teams will battle for The Old Leather Helmet Trophy, one of college football's newest rivalry-style icons. Traditionally, winners of The Old Leather Helmet don the helmet on the field after the game, starting with the head coach and then rotating from player to player as the team celebrates its victory. Each team will receive its own ticket allotment to the game and additional tickets will be sold through the Peach Bowl, Inc. ticket office. Tickets will be available for public sale early in 2025. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game averages more than 69,170 fans for each game - higher than 36 bowl games from the 2019-20 Bowl Season - and an additional 78.4 million television viewers since 2008. Total team payouts average $5.2 million - higher than 26 bowl games during the 2019-20 Bowl Season - with more than $67 million in payouts over its history.
