What we’ve anticipated over the last week or so looks like it is about to happen. Multiple reputable sources are reporting tonight that Oklahoma assistant coach Shane Beamer will be named as the next head coach at South Carolina.
Shane Beamer is no stranger to South Carolina. A native of the Palmetto State, Beamer served as the cornerbacks coach at South Carolina from 2007-08, then served as its linebackers coach/special teams coordinator from 2009-10. In 2009 he was nominated for the Frank Broyles Award, which goes to the assistant coach of the year.
Beamer currently coaches special teams and H-Backs for Oklahoma.
