Report: Shane Beamer to be next coach at South Carolina

Oklahoma Sooners assistant coach Shane Beamer is expected to be named the next head coach at South Carolina, The Athletic reported late Saturday night.

Beamer, 43, is the son of former legendary Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer.

The report comes in the aftermath of stories earlier in the day that Louisville’s Scott Satterfield and Louisiana’s Billy Napier would remain at their current posts.

Beamer was reportedly not on the sidelines Saturday night in No. 11 Oklahoma’s victory over the Baylor Bears, though the reason is unclear. Beamer is Oklahoma’s assistant head coach for offense and coach of the tight ends and H-backs. Beamer joined the OU staff in 2018.

Beamer played for his father at Virginia Tech.

Beamer previously served as an assistant coach under Steve Spurrier at South Carolina (2007-10) and Kirby Smart at Georgia.

South Carolina fired Will Muschamp midway through his fifth season in Columbia, S.C., last month. Mike Bobo was named the interim coach. Muschamp finished 28-30.
