Former star running back Marcus Lattimore is back on board with the South Carolina football team as the director of player development.

On Friday, Lattimore and coach Will Muschamp met with reporters, to discuss Lattimore’s new role with the Gamecocks.

“There’s no better Gamecock than Marcus Lattimore,” Muschamp said in a release. “As a standout high school player, he could have gone anywhere, but chose to stay home and play for his state’s flagship university.

“No one will relate to our players about dealing with success and facing adversity more than Marcus. He will be a great addition to our program.”

Despite suffering two major knee injuries, Lattimore was selected in the fourth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He set a South Carolina record with 38 rushing touchdowns and finished sixth in school history with 2,677 rushing yards.

As a freshman in 2010, he rushed for 1,197 yards and led the Gamecocks to their first SEC Eastern Division title and was named SEC Freshman of the Year.

The 26-year-old prepped at Byrnes High School in Duncan. He’s now married to the former Miranda Bailey.
