Will Muschamp Returns to SEC Media Days with South Carolina [VIDEO]
After a one-year hiatus from SEC Media Days, Will Muschamp returned to Hoover as the new head coach at South Carolina.
Muschamp spent 2015 as the defensive coordinator at Auburn after four seasons as the head coach at Florida.
The Gamecocks were first up on the final day of SEC Media Days and Muschamp started the morning off in the main room and talked about the warm reception he's received in Columbia.
"When I first got to the job in South Carolina, I talked to our players about effort, toughness and discipline in everything they do," Muschamp said. "In every walk of their life -- academically, athletically, spiritually, and socially -- giving great effort, having toughness with what you do and discipline. It doesn't take any ability in any of those situations, it doesn't take any talent if you do that."
It was a bit surprising that Muschamp moved into a head coaching position so quickly and took a job in the same conference and division as his first job. But he said he learned a lot from his time in Gainesville and felt he did a lot of good things. Now the focus shifts to scoring points.
"Really, it comes back to offense, and that's where, from a practice standpoint, to make sure we're practicing the right way, whether it's staff, scheme, decision-making, whatever, but that falls on my shoulders. So I'm taking full responsibility of that and making it better in this situation.
