Anonymous coach praises Shane Beamer on 7-6 season, says Will Muschamp 'wouldn't have done that'
An anonymous coach praised upcoming second-year South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer for the Gamecocks’ 7-6 season in 2021.
Beamer was praised for his ability to adapt to four separate quarterbacks throughout the season, three of which started at some point during the year.
'They went 7-6 & won a bowl game playing four QBs, none of whom were very good. Remarkable. I don't even know how you describe it. That's not supposed to happen. Speaks to coaching. Muschamp wouldn't have done that…'

The four starting quarterbacks in question were Zeb Noland, Jason Brown, Luke Doty and Dakereon Joyner.
Will Muschamp was head coach of the Gamecocks for 5 seasons after stints at Florida, both in the NFL as an assistant head coach (Miami Dolphins) and college as the Gators’ head man for 4 seasons.
Beamer has had a strong start with the Gamecocks, sharing the Steve Spurrier First Year Coach Award with Tennessee’s Josh Heupel in 2021.
