Good news from Columbia as South Carolina’s entire coaching staff is officially under contract.

That’s the latest as South Carolina’s Board of Trustees has officially approved the contract of new Gamecock running backs coach, Montario Hardesty.

Hardesty was given a two-year worth $300,000 annually by South Carolina after he was signed away from Charlotte’s coaching staff.

Here are the salaries for several other South Carolina assistant coaches for 2021: defensive coordinator Clayton White ($900,000), offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield ($900,000), wide receivers coach Justin Stepp ($460,000), defensive backs coach Torrian Gray ($350,000), special teams coordinator Pete Lembo ($450,000), defensive backs coach Torrian Gray ($350,000), outside linebackers coach Mike Peterson ($420,000) and tight ends coach Erik Kimrey ($200,000).

Hardesty played running back for Tennessee before being selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns.

Before landing at Charlotte, Hardesty served as a GA at Tennessee.
