Will Muschamp says changes are coming after South Carolina's blowout loss to Clemson
South Carolina’s miserable 2019 season had an unfortunately fitting ending, a 38-3 home blowout loss to rival Clemson. Fourth-year head coach Will Muschamp said changes will be made moving forward, but he wasn’t ready to get into details.
“We have to make some changes moving forward,” the Gamecocks head coach told reporters. “I am not addressing anything, so don’t ask.”
Muschamp added that the staff will be out recruiting on Sunday.
Here are some of the other highlights from Muschamp’s postgame press conference:
- “Frustrating day to end a frustrating year.”
- Too many mistakes on third downs.
- On turnaround: “I think we’re not far away. I think we have a good, young talented roster. “
- On WR Bryan Edwards: He wasn’t as close to playing as Muschamp “let on” in the leadup to the game.
- On video tribute to Edwards: “That was a touching moment.”
- On the offense: “At the end of the day, we need to get better.”
- On the offensive line: “Should get four of the five (starters) back” for 2020.
- On Dakereon Joyner: Was in concussion protocol Saturday. He went through practice Tuesday and Wednesday, but the medical staff pulled him after he showed some symptoms.
- More on Joyner: Plan is to develop him at wide receiver, which got off track when he moved back to QB after Jake Bentley’s injury.
- On the late John McKissick: “He’s the greatest coach of all time.”
- On future at South Carolina: “I look forward to coaching here for a long time and getting this thing turned around.”
