Ever since South Carolina fired coach Will Muschamp, a number of names have been mentioned as his potential replacement.

Some are more far-fetched than others, as it’s unlikely the Gamecocks (or anyone, for that matter) will land guys like Urban Meyer and Bob Stoops. Liberty’s Hugh Freeze, Oklahoma OC Shane Beamer, Louisiana’s Billy Napier and others are more realistic as options.

One name that has surfaced is Army’s Jeff Monken, who has used the triple-option to great success at West Point (including a 7-2 record so far this year). Let’s just say that style, which Monken may not even use if he were to come to South Carolina, is not very popular with Gamecock fans.

As you can see below, there have been several furious tweets from fans about Monken’s name being potentially connected to the South Carolina job:




We’ll see where South Carolina goes with its coaching search, but it seems fans want the school to move on from Monken as quickly as possible.
