Back on the coaching grind: Will Muschamp reportedly working for Georgia
While most folks would probably take a long break from working if they were set to receive a hefty buyout after being laid off like the one Will Muschamp has coming to him from South Carolina (the coach’s buyout is expected to be around $15.5 million), most football coaches are just wired differently than the rest of us.
Case in point, Muschamp is already back on the coaching grind at his alma mater.
That’s the word out of Athens as Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Muschamp has been spotted entering Georgia’s football complex on a daily basis this week and even appears to have a parking spot assigned to him on campus.
It’s unclear what role Muschamp has within Kirby Smart’s program but Georgia currently has an opening after secondary coach Charlton Warren left the Bulldogs to become the new defensive coordinator at Indiana this week.
For what it’s worth, Muschamp’s son, Jackson Muschamp, followed in his father’s footsteps and is a walk-on quarterback at Georgia. Last season was Jackson’s first season with the Bulldogs.
UPDATE: Georgia has responded to this story and noted that Muschamp is not an employee of the school at this time. The official statement from Georgia reads “Will Muschamp is not currently employed at the University of Georgia.”
