NEW GAMECOCK COACH SHORES UP RECRUITING EFFORTS, DEFENSIVE STAFF

University of South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp has landed another one of the nation’s top recruiters to his Gamecock coaching staff.

Muschamp announced the hiring of former Alabama defensive coach Lance Thompson – ranked by ESPN as the nation’s top recruiter in 2014 – as South Carolina’s new assistant head coach of defense and defensive line coach.

Thompson was the interim defensive coordinator for Auburn’s bowl game this year – and did an amazing job against the nation’s No. 1 quarterback, Memphis’ Paxon Lynch, who completed just 16 of 37 passes for 108 yards and no touchdowns against the Tigers.

“I’m excited to have Coach Thompson join our staff,” Muschamp said. “He did a great job calling the Auburn defense in their bowl win over Memphis. He has coached multiple positions throughout his career and has a great understanding of our defensive system. He will be an outstanding addition to our staff.”

Thompson – who recruited Julio Jones, A.J. McCarron, D.J. Fluker and Trent Richardson to Alabama – previously coached with Muschamp on Nick Saban’s LSU coaching staff.

A graduate of The Citadel, he has coached on national championship staffs at Alabama, LSU and Georgia Tech.

With the hiring of Thompson and current interim Georgia head coach Bryan McClendon – another award-winning national recruiter – Muschamp should make South Carolina more competitive in recruiting against Clemson, which has been consistently recording Top Ten classes.

The expectations are to win the East outright and the SEC Tourney to gain a spot in the Orange or Cotton Bowls. It is possible to lose the SEC Championship and still get a spoy in the BCS playoffs. Regardless, Muschamp can’t get us there. John Harbaugh can get us there. Muschamp deserves two seasons to win the East. Tanner must approach and recruit Harbaugh to take over in 2018.Muschamp has all the appearances of being heavily recruited by Spurrier as a favor to Tanner whom blew an opportunity to put his name among the esteemed AD’s of the past. Harbaugh or highway.
