Will Muschamp: Not a College Head Coach
Will Muschamp was fired yesterday as head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks. In this, his fifth season leading the Carolina program, his record stands at 2-5. He is 28-30 for his tenure in Columbia. He was 28-21 at his previous stint as the head coach of the Florida Gators. Muschamp will take with him as he leaves the Carolina campus a hefty $13+ million buyout. His buyout upon leaving Florida was $6+ million, so this inept ex-head coach is being paid roughly $20 million not to coach. The Athletic Director's who agreed to these contract buyouts are equally inept, and both of them should have been kicked out of the door with Muschamp. Prior to his adventurous journey into the college head coaching world, Muschamp was the Defensive Coordinator at LSU, Texas and Auburn. With his defensive background, it's ironic that in his last game as a head coach, his Gamecock defense allowed a whopping 59 points to a struggling Ole Miss program. The experiment of trying to be a college head coach for Will Muschamp should be over at this point. He should be out of options in that role; he has proven he cannot handle that top position. He's a Defensive Coordinator. Period. Quit trying to put the square peg into the round hole.
