For what it’s worth, we had a sign this was coming a couple hours ago when his Twitter bio didn’t contain any reference to the Gamecocks.

I’ve had multiple people hit me up in the past couple hours, and they all wanted Muschamp gone. They’d had enough.
Personally, I think Muschamp is a very entertaining guy, and he’s a solid recruiter. He brought a lot of talent to Columbia.

The problem is that he simply didn’t do anything with the resources and assets on the table. The Gamecocks were never competitive under his leadership.
In the world of college football, you don’t last long when that’s the case.
The good news for Muschamp is that I’m 100% sure he’ll have a new job soon. It might not be in the P5, but he’ll certainly have offers.
