Morgantown, West Virginia – Former South Carolina Gamecocks Head Coach Will Muschamp was fired last weekend and rumors about who will replace him have been swirling ever since.
While the likelihood of West Virginia’s Neal Brown leaving WVU seems very, very low right now, he did appear on the short list of South Carolina sports writer John Whittle, who covers the Gamecocks for 247 Sports.
This certainly doesn’t mean that there’s mutual interest or any real interest at all right now, but Whittle does believe that South Carolina Athletic Director Ray Tanner will likely vet and learn more about Neal Brown during the hiring process.
Other coaches mentioned on this short list were Oklahoma Assistant Coach Shane Beamer, Coastal Carolina Head Coach Jamey Chadwell, Liberty Head Coach Hugh Freeze, Florida Assistant Coach Brian Johnson, Louisiana Head Coach Billy Napier, Alabama Assistant Coach Steve Sarkisian and Lousiville’s Head Coach Scott Satterfield.
Neal Brown was also mentioned on the “Risers” list for potential candidates with Brian Johnson and Scott Satterfield.
