Simply put, South Carolina hasn’t gotten enough out of the team’s running backs in the Will Muschamp era. To fix that issue, the program made a change shifting Bobby Bentley to tight ends coach and bringing in former Georgia running back Thomas Brown, who coached running backs at Miami last season.
This spring was Brown’s first in Columbia and based on the video recently put out by the official Gamecock Football Twitter account, the team’s new position coach is bringing some much-needed energy and enthusiasm to the practice field.
It’s impossible to watch this video and not root for Brown, who wouldn’t want to play for this guy after watching him celebrate achievements on the practice field?
If that energy translates to his position group moving forward, South Carolina should expect a significant boost in production from the team’s running backs in 2019. When that happens, there’s no doubt the program’s new assistant coach will be celebrating from the sideline:
“What is fatigue? What that feel like?” 😂
