Seems fair to say it hasn’t been a fun season in Columbia, SC. Losing starting quarterback Jake Bentley after the first game of the season was a brutal blow for this year’s team, who has moved forward playing true freshman Ryan Hilinski. Understandably, the offense has struggled at times.
Saturday night’s loss to App State dropped the Gamecocks to 4-6 on the season (3-4 in SEC play).
Now in his fourth season at helm, Will Muschamp sits 26-23 overall and 15-16 in conference play. The natives are getting a bit restless; but our understanding is that Muschamp has the support of the President and Board of Trustees. Sources tell FootballScoop Muschamp is expected to return; albeit with the understanding that the program needs to show signs of advancing.
Muschamp believes in his staff as is; but the powers that be are likely looking for some change in hopes of better results on the field going forward. It wouldn’t be shocking to see some new blood brought in to breathe new life into the staff.
