WATCH: South Carolina reveals first look inside Long Family Football Operations Center
South Carolina made the choice to hold back any promotional material for the new Long Family Football Operations Center until the players themselves had a chance to check out the new facility. Now that the Gamecocks have seen what $50 million can buy, the school was eager to show off the program’s new football headquarters.
The building is just west of Williams-Brice Stadium and is 110,000 square feet of impressive architecture. The new football operations center will host South Carolina’s recruiting center, locker room, weight room, athletic training room, coaches’ offices, meeting rooms, dining room, equipment room and player lounges.
“For our players, it’s a one-stop shop,” Muschamp said upon the lead up to the opening of the building. “It’s going to be just fabulous for us as a staff. Right now, our practice situation is phenomenal. We’ve got the nicest (indoor facility) I’ve ever been around and two grass practice fields with plenty of workspace outside of that. To get this facility done, I’m really excited.”
