Will Muschamp joins South Carolina coaches in coronavirus PSA
Will Muschamp is the latest SEC football coach to record a coronavirus-related public service announcement.
South Carolina’s head football coach joins men’s basketball coach Frank Martin and women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley and athletic director Ray Tanner in a message from Gamecocks athletics advising fans to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and practice social distancing by no longer holding hangouts or parties in order to combat the spread of the highly contagious virus:
“Everyone wants to beat this virus but in order for that to happen, everyone has to take responsibility. What you do is important. Each person watching this can make a difference. Each person who decides to stay home and practice social distancing is not only helping us return to normal, it’s saving lives. This is no longer as simple as washing your hands for 20 seconds or standing a few feet away from friends. Taking responsibility means making major changes in our daily lives. It’s time apart from people we care about, but time apart because we care.”
Each of us can make a difference.

Muschamp’s team was able to get in five spring practices in late February and early March before the SEC suspended all spring sports activities until at least April 15.
