SC coordinator Kurt Roper has been fired

Kurt Roper watches his skill players warm up before the Georgia game in Athens

SC has just announced it has relieved co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper of his duties "effective immediately" leaving co-OC Bryan McClendon to call the plays for the upcoming Outback Bowl against MI. Muschamp said "Right now, (Roper's) our offensive coordinator and that's all I know".

Co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon will lead the offense and call plays for SC in the Outback Bowl. "We appreciate Kurt's contributions to our program and to the University and wish him all the best".

Adam Rittenberg of ESPN brings word that Roper was a head coaching candidate at Rice but, in the aftermath of the Owls hiring Stanford offensive coordinator Mike Bloomgren, something of a parachute never materialized.

Georgia, Auburn defensive coordinators interview again with Tennessee
Tucker also has experience in the National Football League as the defensive coordinator for the Bears, Jaguars and Browns. Tennessee's search for a new head football coach continues, this time under the guidance of Phillip Fulmer.

SC finished the regular season averaging just over 24 points per game, which ranked 12th in the SEC. Muschamp estimated earlier in the week that 70 percent of his roster is made up of underclassmen - with starting quarterback Jake Bentley in his sophomore season, and three of South Carolina's top receivers either true freshmen or sophomores.

After Bentley was named the starter, Carolina went 4-3 that year averaging just over 21 points per game.

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