Connor Shaw accepts new position after moving on from coaching

COLUMBIA, S.C.  — Connor Shaw, the all-time winningest quarterback at the University of South Carolina, has been appointed as a sales representative for Colonial Life in the Midlands and Upstate of South Carolina.

Shaw won 27 games at South Carolina from 2010-2013. He’s also the school’s career leader in completion percentage (65.5 percent), second in career passing touchdowns (56) and fourth in career passing yards (6,074).

“I’m really excited about being an entrepreneur and building a business and knowing I have 1,200 teammates ready to help,” Shaw said. “It’s geared toward helping families. If being a quarterback taught me anything, it was the importance of people being there to help and protect you when you need it the most. That’s exactly why I joined Colonial Life.”
