Nick Saban told local reporters on Wednesday that he’s pleased with the chemistry of this team, but fans have expressed concerns on social media in certain areas.
William “Will” Muschamp has built a quality program for the Gamecocks, as he enters his fourth season at head coach.
A defensive mind, Muschamp was on Saban’s staff at Louisiana State University and he served as defensive coordinator for the Texas Longhorns (2008-10) under Mack Brown.
He was on the staff that faced the Crimson Tide in the 2010 BCS national title matchup off the 2009 season.
