USC co-offensive coordinator let go by football team

USC co-offensive coordinator let go by football team

"After much deliberation, I have chose to go in a different direction with the offensive coordinator position", SC coach Will Muschamp said.

"After much deliberation, I have made a decision to go in a different direction with the offensive coordinator position on our football team", SC coach Will Muschamp said in a release.

SC is not expected to fill the position until after the January 1 bowl game.

According to Dan Wolken of USA Today, South Carolina co-offensive coordinator Kurt Roper will not be back with the Gamecocks for a third season.

The Gamecocks (8-4) rank 108th nationally in total offense, averaging just 340.2 yards per game.

SC averaged 24.1 points per game (12th SEC) and 340.2 yards per game (12th SEC) this season.

But much like the Wolverines, this SC team is young.

Roper, who was at SC for two seasons, is thought to have played a major role in his development. In his first year, Carolina fielded three starting quarterbacks before the job was earned by Jake Bentley.

Before his time in the NFL, Roper served one season under Muschamp as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Florida.

He was also Arian Foster's running back coach at Tennessee and Thad Lewis' coach at Duke.
