Will Muschamp

Muschamp walked-on at Georgia as a safety in the early 1990s before landing his first college gig at Auburn as a grad assistant in 1995. After several small-school stops, Muschamp landed the linebackers job at LSU in 2001, before being promoted to defensive coordinator the following season. His LSU defense in 2003 led the nation in scoring defense (11.0 PPG) and total defense (252.2 YPG) during a national championship season. Muschamp’s intense sideline personality wasn’t brought to the forefront however until his three-year stint under Mack Brown at Texas as the Big XII’s highest-paid assistant from 2008 to 2010.

Said to be the head coach in waiting in Austin, Muschamp bolted for Gainesville instead in 2011 after talking it over with Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley. Muschamp was fired as head coach of the Florida Gators during his fourth season.

Soon after his departure from Gainesville, Gus Malzahn successfully wooed Muschamp to be the defensive coordinator of the Auburn Tigers.

Just one year after joining Auburn, the South Caroline Gamecocks hired Muschamp to replace Steve Spurrier in Columbia.
