South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp strongly supported offensive coordinator Kurt Roper on Tuesday.
“We have a very competent offensive staff and competent offensive coordinator and those guys do a good job,” Muschamp said during his regular Tuesday news conference. “We have to be more productive. They don’t disagree. They think we need to be more productive, and they are working tirelessly to make sure that happens.”
The Gamecocks are 13th in the SEC in scoring with 22.6 points per game. They are 11th in the SEC in yards (336 per game). Muschamp won’t have any extra input into the offense this week, he said.
“No more than I have in every year as a head coach, and that’s just to give some ideas on how they are trying to defense us,” Muschamp said. “I hired the offensive coordinator to do his job and the offensive staff, it’s a cumulative effort of everyone in the room.”
South Carolina hosts Arkansas on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 4:01 p.m. on SEC Network.
