South Carolina fires Will Muschamp
It’s the second time he’s been let go from an SEC program midseason.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina has fired football coach Will Muschamp, the second time he’s been let go from a Southeastern Conference program in midseason.
The school said in a release Sunday that Muschamp has been “relieved” of his duties with the football program. Athletic director Ray Tanner said first-year offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, a former head coach at Colorado State, will take over as interim coach.
The 49-year-old Muschamp had four years remaining on his contract. His buyout from the school is $13.2 million.
The Gamecocks are 2-5 and lost their third straight game, 59-42, at Ole Miss on Saturday night.
