Will Muschamp has agreed to accept the head-coaching job at South Carolina, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad. Sports Illustrated first reported Muschamp's hiring. Muschamp was one of several candidates to interview for the Gamecocks job this week in a search process that took an odd turn Saturday. Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne tweeted that his coach, Rich Rodriguez, had not committed to a South Carolina offer and would remain the Wildcats' coach. But sources close to the search process told ESPN.com's Chris Low that Muschamp had always been at or near the top of the Gamecocks' list. Muschamp interviewed with South Carolina officials earlier this week along with several others, including Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley and South Floridacoach WiLLLLLLLie Taggart. Muschamp could be introduced as early as Monday, a source told The Associated Press. The 44-year-old Muschamp is in his first season as Auburn's defensive coordinator. He was the Florida head coach for four seasons from 2011 to '14, compiling a 28-21 record before being fired at the end of the 2014 season.
