By Sports Department

COLUMBIA, S.C. (USC SID) -- The University of South Carolina Board of Trustees has approved contracts for assistant football coaches in the Athletics Department, it was announced today.

The Board of Trustees approved two-year contracts for football assistant coaches Deke Adams, Kirk Botkin, Grady Brown, Shawn Elliott, G.A. Mangus, Joe Robinson, Everette Sands and Steve Spurrier Jr. All are signed through the 2014 season.

Defensive Coordinator Lorenzo Ward was given a three-year contract and is signed through the 2015 season.

Head Coach Steve Spurrier was given a two-year contract extension in December 2012 by the Board of Trustees. His current contract runs through December 2017.

“Coach Spurrier and his staff have propelled us into a Top Ten program and we appreciate what they have done at Carolina,” said USC Director of Athletics Ray Tanner. “Our coaching staff is among the best in the country and their new contracts compensate them accordingly.”

"Whenever you have an outstanding season as we have had each of the past two years, it's important to reward the coaches with two-year contracts. Hopefully, we can continue that success in the coming years,” said Coach Spurrier.
