South Carolina Football announced Will Muschamp is fired as head coach, meaning it is now searching for the next South Carolina head coach. So who are the top candidates to replace Will Muschamp as the Gamecocks head coach? We’ve got the top South Carolina targets and some realistic options.
There are some big names South Carolina could hire, like Brent Venables and Hugh Freeze, but just how attractive is the SC job right now? Would the top coach candidates want the South Carolina job at the moment?
Proven coaches should be high on Arkansas’ head coach candidate list and there are several who make sense. They are at smaller schools, but Billy Napier has done a fantastic job at Louisiana, while Jamey Chadwell and Will Healy have built up programs at Coastal Carolina and Charlotte. Jeff Monken is another sleeper name given his ties to the school president.
Arkansas Football could go with a coordinator hire, and one in particular makes sense: Alabama OC Steve Sarkisian. They could also explore an NFL OC with ties to the college level – Joe Brady, now with the Carolina Panthers.
Muschamp’s firing won’t be cheap: It will cost about $13 million, plus money owed to assistant coaches who will be fired once the next head coach is hired. Muschamp showed promise early in his tenure, but struggled badly at the end, forcing a change.
Here’s the full Top 10 Candidates List:
#10 Brent Venables, Clemson DC
#9 Shane Beamer, Oklahoma Asst.
#8 Tony Elliott, Clemson OC
#7 Will Healy, Charlotte HC
#6 Jamey Chadwell, CCU HC
#5 Jeff Monken, Army HC
#4 Hugh Freeze, Liberty HC
#3 Joe Brady, Panthers OC
#2 Steve Sarkisian, Alabama OC
#1 Billy Napier, Louisiana HC
