Shane Beamer announces hirings of South Carolina offensive and defensive coordinators, strength coach
South Carolina officially has three new assistant coaches hired to Shane Beamer’s staff. On Sunday, the Gamecocks announced three hirings: offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Marcus Satterfield, defensive coordinator Clayton White and strength and conditioning coach Luke Day.
Satterfield comes over from the Carolina Panthers where he was assistant offensive line coach. He and Beamer previously worked together as grad assistants at Tennessee.
“I’ve known Marcus for nearly 20 years since we were graduate assistants together,” Beamer said via a school release. “He has a brilliant offensive mind and brings experience from both the collegiate and professional levels.”
White arrives from Western Kentucky where he was the defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach.
“I’ve had my eye on Clayton for a long time,” Beamer said in the announcement. “He was a great player in college and had some time in the NFL. He’s been part of good programs and has a high level of success, most recently at Western Kentucky. He’s from North Carolina and has a lot of ties to the region. He had some opportunities to go elsewhere, but he wants to be at South Carolina and we’re happy to have him.”
Day joins the South Carolina program after spending the 2020 season at Marshall.
“Luke comes highly recommended from people I trust,” Beamer said in the release. “I spoke to a lot of strength coaches about our position and after spending 90 minutes on the phone with him, there was no doubt in my mind he was the best candidate by far. He has a great vision for developing the players, both in strength and conditioning and in the mental aspects, which is critical.”
