South Carolina has promoted Bryan McClendon to offensive coordinator, filling one of the Gamecocks biggest items on the offseason to-do list.

South Carolina coach Will Muschamp has promoted receivers coach Bryan McClendon to offensive coordinator. McClendon, 34, served as the team's interim offensive coordinator in the Gamecocks' 26-19 victory over Michigan in the Outback Bowl. He replaces Kurt Roper, who was fired after the regular season.

South Carolina also hires former Ole Miss offensive coordinator Dan Werner as quarterbacks coach. Werner spent the 2017 season as an offensive analyst at Alabama. He had two stints coaching quarterbacks at Miami. A good mentor for Gamecocks signal caller Jake Bentley.

South Carolina is promoting Bryan McClendon to offensive coordinator. An official announcement will come later this morning. Although South Carolina expressed interest in coordinators outside the program, McClendon's chances improved, sources said, after the Gamecocks beat Michigan in the Outback Bowl. McClendon has been South Carolina's co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach the past two years. He's among the top recruiters in the SEC.

Five turnovers for Michigan as South Carolina scores 23 unanswered over the final 17:25 to beat the Wolverines 26-19 in Tampa. The Big Ten's bid to go an unprecedented 8-0 in bowl season is foiled by the SEC.

In six minutes of clock time, Michigan has lost a 16-point lead by giving up three touchdowns. And QB Brandon Peters had to go to the sideline after he was poked in the eye. Peters is back now to replace John O'Korn and trying to bring the Wolverines back from a 23-19 deficit in the fourth quarter to keep the Big Ten unbeaten in bowl season.

No conference has more at stake today than the SEC, which can wreck the Big Ten's bid for a perfect bowl season and later, of course, advance two teams to the CFP championship. Decent start for South Carolina, forcing a pair quick punts by Michigan in the Outback Bowl. No score in Tampa.

'The hit heard around the world,' five years later

Jadeveon Clowney was already a star, but his bone-rattling, helmet-flying, fumble-causing hit on Michigan's Vincent Smith in the 2013 Outback Bowl made him an overnight sensation. We look back at the play known ever since as simply "The Hit."
