COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) - Will Muschamp has been considered a top candidate for the South Carolina Gamecocks head-coach position for a few weeks now and agreed to accept the position. He will be officially introduced as the new head-coach Monday during a news conference.

Muschamp was attracted by South Carolina director Ray Tanner because he has an extensive background in the SEC, according to ESPN.

NBC Sports said, Muschamp is only one season removed from being the head coach at Florida where he went 28-21 over four seasons, including a 17-15 mark in SEC play. Muschamp was also named the 2012 SEC Coach of the Year after leading the Gators to an 11-2 record and a Top 10 finish.

A news conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday to officially introduce Muschamp at The Zone at Williams-Brice Stadium. University President Harris Pastides, and Athletics Director Ray Tanner will join Muschamp at the podium.

Steve Spurrier was the Gamecocks head coach and announced his resignation back in October. Click here to view full story.
