South Carolina's Will Muschamp gets new 6-year, $28.2 million contract

Former Gamecocks running back Marcus Lattimore is going back to school to join the SC football team as a member of Will Muschamp's staff. He will work with special teams and also help with linebackers and nickel backs.

Muschamp, who has been coaching in the SEC since 2011, was on a one-year stint as the defensive coordinator for the Auburn Tigers in 2015. After two seasons in Lexington, he moved on to the University of Florida, where he was placed in charge of quality control for the offense in 2013, working primarily with the wide receivers, and for the defense in 2014, working with the defensive backs under Coach Muschamp.

Lattimore, 26, is one of the most beloved Gamecocks to don the Garnet and Black.

Way back in 2010, Lattimore burst onto the scene by rushing for 1,197 yards and 17 touchdowns as a freshman for SC.

The chopper was scheduled to land at the designated oil rig at Mumbai High at 11 am, PTI quoted official sources as saying. Just 15 minutes later, it suddenly lost contact with both the Mumbai ATC and the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC).

Lattimore was a three-year contributor for the Gamecocks between 2010 and 2012. He returned for his junior year and had some promising performances before he suffered an even more disastrous injury to his other knee.

Lattimore was a great college football player.

Lattimore did not play a down in the National Football League despite being selected in the fourth round of the 2013 draft by the San Francisco 49ers.

Following an impressive 9-4 season in Columbia, South Carolina's coaching staff is now set to reap the rewards of their efforts. "He could have gone anywhere in the country and made a decision to stay here".
