watch the video posted on the front page with his interview. Official title is dir of Player Development. He said he wants to help them with a plan for after football.

According to ML and his comments from Muschamp, he can be involved in every aspect of the program:

Awesome story and some great news. Happy to have ML back but as he states, he never stopped being a Gamecock.

I thought the NCAA blocked us from hiring Lattimore a few years ago. Is this a different role or has something changed?

Lattimore can't interact directly with potential recruits through foundation activities while being a part of our football staff. As an example, over the Holidays his foundation sponsored a shopping trip for some kids (I think they were orphans?) and Lattimore went to Wal-Mart with them and whatnot to pick out their presents. This coming Christmas his foundation can assist in putting on this event, but he would not be permitted to personally attend the event with the kids, as they may one day be perspective football recruits and this would create a compliance problem.

So basically charitable work with orphans is an NCAA violation but setting up fake classes for athletes to maintain academic eligibility is not....

Simply put - he can manage his foundation (name can still be tied to it) but can't be present at the events.

Kinda dumb that the NCAA can't let him be at his foundation's own events, but whatever.

Marcus is the perfect man for the job. So happy for him and know he will exceed at his position. Would not be surprised if he moves up in the coaching ranks in a few years.

Kinda dumb doesn't even describe it. It is a complete embarrassment by the NCAA, but not surprising at all. But yep whatever, great hire for the university.

Maybe his foundation could set up some fake classes for prospects. Then, Marcus could be listed as the instructor for said fake classes; the NCAA's collective head would explode in spectacular fashion!!

I agree. My respect for Muschamp just shot through the roof. This is the perfect position for Marcus, and proves Muschamp really cares about the kids he's coaching. Proud to have Lattimore and Muschamp representing my university.

"Continuous improvement" is the mantra of success used by a company I am proud to be associated with. Hint, they make tires right here in SC.

Take the man to the craps table, Muschamp keeps rolling winners.
As another poster said, 'fantastic' can't start to describe it. Great hire for the university.

It's great to see that, in spite of some great Gamecock football I have been witness to in my life, the heyday of USC may still be in my future.....basketball and baseball included.
