Sources: South Carolina's new offensive coordinator to come from Carolina Panthers

After losing his offensive coordinator to Auburn earlier today, Shane Beamer needed 24 hours to line up a replacement.

Marcus Satterfield will be the offensive coordinator at South Carolina, sources told FootballScoop on Thursday night. Joe Person and Josh Kendall at The Athleticalso reported the same.

Satterfield spent 2020 as the assistant offensive line coach for the Carolina Panthers and previously worked for Matt Rhule at Baylor and Temple, sandwiched around a 2-year run as the head coach at Tennessee Tech in 2016-17.

Incidentally, Satterfield is the third offensive assistant Rhule has lost in the past two days. Jake Peetz and DJ Mangas left to take over the offense at LSU.

Satterfield has previously coordinated offenses for Temple, East Tennessee State, Chattanooga and UT Martin. He initially worked with Beamer at Tennessee from 2002-03, when both were graduate assistants under Phillip Fulmer.

He will inherit a Gamecock offense that finished 10th in the SEC in scoring (23.5 points per game) and yards per play (5.35). Ironically, South Carolina earned those marks under the man that was set to coordinate them again in 2021 until today -- Mike Bobo.
