Report: South Carolina to spend Thanksgiving interviewing third head coaching candidate
The South Carolina Gamecocks are in the midst of a coaching search after firing coach Will Muschamp a couple of weeks ago.
According to reports, Coastal Carolina’s Jamey Chadwell and Louisiana’s Billy Napier have interviewed for the position, and a third interview is coming tomorrow.
Per ESPN’s Chris Low, Oklahoma OC Shane Beamer will spend his Thanksgiving interviewing for the Gamecocks’ job.
Beamer was an assistant under Steve Spurrier at South Carolina from 2007 to 2010, so he’s familiar with the area and the program. Oklahoma’s game this week was postponed due to COVID-19 issues.
Making things more difficult during this search is that South Carolina president Bob Caslen announced on Wednesday that he had tested positive for COVID-19. We’ll see what happens with the search moving forward.
