Will Muschamp Adds Auburn Assistants to South Carolina Staff

20151209MuschampCOLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – New South Carolina coach Will Muschamp has named two Auburn staffers to be Gamecocks assistant coaches.

Muschamp said Tuesday that Travaris Robinson will be South Carolina’s defensive coordinator and Bobby Bentley will coach running backs.

Muschamp was named South Carolina coach Sunday after spending last season as Auburn’s defensive coordinator.

Robinson spent the past five seasons coaching defensive backs under Muschamp at Florida from 2011-14 and at Auburn this past season.

Bentley is a former Presbyterian head coach who was an offensive analyst for Auburn coach Gus Malzahn.

Bentley also was a highly successful prep coach at Byrnes High School in South Carolina. Byrnes is the alma mater of ex-Gamecocks record-setting running back Marcus Lattimore.
