The other favorite was Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns head coach Billy Napier, who reportedly had another interview with the Gamecocks administration on Saturday.
Beamer will replace former head coach Will Muschamp. Mike Bobo has been filling in as the interim head coach since Muschamp was fired.
This will be Beamer’s first head coaching opportunity. He is the son of legendary Virginia Tech Hokies head coach Frank Beamer.
The 43-year-old will come to South Carolina after being the Oklahoma Sooners assistant head coach and tight ends coach. Beamer has spent three seasons in this role.
Beamer will take over a program that went 2-8 during the 2020 season. South Carolina ended their season with a six-game losing streak.
Their last win on the season came in a 30-22 win over the Auburn Tigers on Saturday, October 17th.
The Gamecocks may have an opportunity to play in a Bowl game at the end of the season despite the 2-8 record. However, with multiple Bowl games canceled due to the coronavirus, some teams may not be able to play in the extra season.
Before coming to South Carolina, Beamer also coached at Georgia, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Georgia Tech. Beamer coached with the Gamecocks for four seasons from 2007 through 2010.
