Talk about your rabid pursuit of excellence…
Will Muschamp has won more games than any other coach in his first three seasons at South Carolina, and is the first coach in school history to take the Gamecocks to bowl games in each of his first three years.
USC appreciates it.
The Board of Trustees approved raises and extensions for Muschamp and assistants Bryan McClendon, Travaris Robinson and Dan Werner on Tuesday.
Muschamp was extended one year through the 2024 season, with the same $200,000 increase for that season that’s in his current contract.
McClendon was extended through the 2021 season and had his salary increased $350,000 per season. He will make $1 million per year in the new deal.
Robinson was extended through the 2021 season with the same $1.2 million salary.
Werner was extended through the 2020 season and had his salary increased to $700,000.
Imagine what they would have gotten if Boom’s team could have stayed within single digits of Kirby’s.
Then again, cannon shots don’t come cheap.
