When the opportunity to return home comes, it can be hard to pass up.

If John Scott Jr. didn’t know that lesson already, he learned it recently when Will Muschamp offered him a position on the South Carolina coaching staff. The opportunity to return home won out in the end and Scott decided to leave Arkansas for the Gamecocks. Scott was officially announced as the new defensive line coach in Columbia earlier this week.

Scott didn’t leave in the middle of the night without notice, however, and he even took the time to thank Arkansas, Chad Morris, John Chavis, Hunter Yurachek, his former players and the fans for all their support over the years.

Classy move here by Scott.

If you were wondering, Arkansas has yet to announce a replacement for his role on the coaching staff.
