Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
A recent report by Dan Wolken with USA TODAY Sports suggests South Carolina was closing in on deal to hire Houston head coach Tom Herman to replace Steve Spurrier but things went south when the Gamecocks lost to the Citadel.

Those same people, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity, said Herman’s mind changed after South Carolina lost to The Citadel on Nov. 21 and it became clear the next coach would have a massive rebuilding job on his hands. Herman decided to stay at Houston for a deal worth nearly $3 million per year and, presumably, wait for a more high-profile situation.
The Gamecocks ultimately hired Will Muschamp after having extensive conversations with Kirby Smart and Rich Rodriguez, according to the report.

no way Herman was seriously considering the S. Carolina job. He had (and will continue to have) much better choices.
