Will Muschamp is out at South Carolina

South Carolina has fired its football coach Will Muschamp on Sunday.

The school announced that Mike Bobo will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

"After a thorough assessment of our football program, we have decided to make a change with the head football coach," said South Carolina AD Tanner. "I appreciate all that Will Muschamp has done for our program and wish him and his family the best moving forward. I believe our program will be well served by Coach Bobo as the interim head coach as we search for a new leader for Gamecock Football.

"We will begin a search immediately to find the best head coach for Carolina football," said Tanner. "We have great facilities, a passionate fan base, a University that is committed to excellence in football and a support system that is second to none in developing student-athletes. We will be looking for someone with the energy, commitment and organizational skills that can move our program to a championship level."

The Gamecocks have lost their last three games by a score of 52-24 (LSU), 48-3 (Texas A&M), 59-42 (Ole Miss), and hold a dismal 2-5 record. In those three games, the defense has given up 1,779 yards and 159 points.

Last season, they had a rough 4-8 season, and their program's win totals have decreased every year since 2017.

At South Carolina, Muschamp had an overall record of 28-30 with a winning percentage of only .483. That's not good, folks.

The Gamecocks couldn't really make any headway in the SEC East going only 2-7 against Georgia and Florida during Muschamp's tenure.

Despite economics being tough for college athletics across the county because of the pandemic, South Carolina will buy out the rest of his contract, which is reportedly $13.2 million. He had four more seasons left on his contract after the school agreed to a contract extension after the 2018 season.

Muschamp will get paid a total of around $21.6 million to not coach at his last two head coaching gigs with Florida (2011-2014) and South Carolina.
