(Gamecocks searching update for November 21st)

Following up on our information from Thursday night, source information leads us to believe there was conversation Friday between Ray Tanner and Billy Napier. We have not pinned down if that conversation was in person, virtually or over the phone. Napier has an unplanned off weekend with his team sidelined with Covid-19 issues.

We also confirmed Friday through a source Oklahoma assistant head coach Shane Beamer has had a couple of conversations with the third party representing USC. It’s likely Beamer and Tanner will have conversations next week. The source said Beamer is highly interested in the USC job, partially because he considers himself a native of the state having been born in Charleston, and partially because of his previous time at USC in the Steve Spurrier staff. The source said Beamer has called the job his “dream job.”

At this point, Napier and Beamer appear to be the first two candidates in line for conversations with Tanner.

According to a source, one concern that has been brought up by at least one candidate is Tanners’ security at USC. Tanner has come under fire and the coach has concerns about being hired by Tanner but then having to work under a different boss at some point.

Winning is the name of the game.  Who a HC works for shouldn't matter that much.

I would not go with the aforementioned candidate.

I am warming up to the idea of Shane Beamer but I don't think he is the ideal candidate. Let him be the head coach at a smaller school and see if he is successful before we grab him. Then if our next coach doesn't work out, grab Beamer!

If we do hire him I cannot say that I would be elated or disappointed. Beamer was one of my favorite coaches of the Spurrier era and he was a great recruiter so I could see him keeping up a similar pace to Muschamp's efforts. Beamer's success would all hinge on who he selects as his OC and DC!

This may have been mentioned before, but I just read on Wikipedia that Jamie Chadwell has some baggage too. Apparently, while he was the head coach at Charleston Southern the NCAA made them vacate all of their victories over his last two years for violations.  Surely Coastal Carolina knew about this before they hired him, so I guess it's not a big deal, but it is a blemish.

If a coach comes in here and wins (even at the 7-8 game level) he has nothing to worry about in terms of who his boss is.

You are absolutely right about this. The only time a football coach needs to worry about the AD is if he's losing or cheating. Unfortunately, cheating might only be a problem if he gets caught. It's a shame, but that's how it is at many schools.

Sadly, before we hired Muschamp, there were some really good looking candidates out there but we did not get one of them. I really did not think of Muschamp after seeing how he did at Florida. He was a surprise to me. I just pray there are not any more surprises in our HC this time.
