Will Muschamp needs another offensive coordinator after firing Kurt Roper

Will Muschamp needs another offensive coordinator after firing Kurt Roper”

SC offensive coordinator Kurt Roper is not expected to be retained and offensive staff changes could be announced as soon as Wednesday, USA Today's Dan Wolken reported Tuesday, citing a source.

The Gamecocks fired Roper on Wednesday ahead of the team's trip to the Outback Bowl against MI.

"After much deliberation, I have made a decision to go in a different direction with the offensive coordinator position on our football team". While the Gamecocks finished with an encouraging 8-4 record, it came with struggles on the offensive side, as SC finished 100th in the country in points per game (24.1) and 88th in the country in offensive S&P+ this season. Wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon will serve as the team's play-caller for the MI game. In between Florida and USC, Roper worked with the Cleveland Browns as senior offensive assistant coach.

During head coach Will Muschamp's Outback Bowl news conference on Sunday.

SC ranked 108th nationally in total offense, 98th in scoring offense and 107th in rushing offense.

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

SC will take on MI in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
