South Carolina fires its offensive coordinator ahead of Outback Bowl

"After much deliberation, I have made a decision to go in a different direction with the offensive coordinator position on our football team", SC coach Will Muschamp said in a release.

Wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon will serve as the team's play-caller for the MI game.

Meanwhile, while Joyner finishes up his high school demands, Muschamp will be using his vast list of contacts to zero in on potential coordinators, Regardless of who comes in, it should be considered the most important hire of the Muschamp era as he looks for someone who can provide a spark to the offense.

"After much deliberation, I have chose to go in a different direction with the offensive coordinator position on our football team", Muschamp said.

Michigan's Outback Bowl opponent, South Carolina, made a change to its coaching staff Tuesday night, firing offensive coordinator Kurt Roper. Michigan's offense is ranked No. 101, averaging 354.9 yards per contest.

Roper, who was at SC for two seasons, is thought to have played a major role in his development.

Despite improvements from quarterback Jake Bentley, South Carolina's offense failed to live up to expectations, particularly in the running game.

Scoring an average of 24.1 points per game, SC is ranked No. 98 nationally in scoring offense, compared to MI, which is ranked No. 86 (25.8 ppg).

Coming into 2017, South Carolina's offense was expected to be the strength of the team.

Roper has been the Gamecocks' offensive coordinator for both of Will Muschamp's two seasons in Columbia and also for Muschamp's last season in Florida.
