COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - Former Gamecocks running back Marcus Lattimore is going back to school to join the South Carolina football team as a member of Will Muschamp's staff.
Lattimore confirmed the reports on Twitter Thursday afternoon.
Lattimore is expected to be working as the Director of Player Development helping the student-athletes prepare for their lives after football.
One of the most popular players in the history of the program, Lattimore played with the Gamecocks from 2010-2012 and helped lead the team to an SEC East title in his freshman year. His last 2 seasons were cut short by devastating knee injuries that eventually ended his football career.
