Report: South Carolina to spend Thanksgiving interviewing third head coaching candidate

11/25/2020

The South Carolina Gamecocks are in the midst of a coaching search after firing coach Will Muschamp a couple of weeks ago.

According to reports, Coastal Carolina’s Jamey Chadwell and Louisiana’s Billy Napier have interviewed for the position, and a third interview is coming tomorrow.

Per ESPN’s Chris Low, Oklahoma OC Shane Beamer will spend his Thanksgiving interviewing for the Gamecocks’ job.

Beamer was an assistant under Steve Spurrier at South Carolina from 2007 to 2010, so he’s familiar with the area and the program. Oklahoma’s game this week was postponed due to COVID-19 issues.

Making things more difficult during this search is that South Carolina president Bob Caslen announced on Wednesday that he had tested positive for COVID-19. We’ll see what happens with the search moving forward.

Well it sounds as if most people's expectations for next head coach will have at least been interviewed after today, Chadwell, Napier and Beamer.  I think we can probably safely put the Freeze talk to bed -- with the after effects of global warming, Freeze never stood a chance.

And honestly, at this point, I think I would be fine with any of those three. I think Napier or Chadwell may bring the most initial excitement to the team in terms of offense, but I think Beamer would be the most stable, capable administrator (and possible the most connected to the largest coordinator pool).  Regardless, I hope this is settled by early next week, so the staff can try to salvage the recruiting class.

Just wait until next year!

Sigh...
