South Carolina's co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper has been relieved of his duties effective immediately, the school announced this morning.

Bryan McClendon, South Carolina's other co-offensive coordinator, will call the team's plays in the bowl game against the Wolverines. "We appreciate Kurt's contributions to our program and to the University and wish him all the best". Coach Will Muschamp will not name Roper's replacement until after the bowl game.

McClendon, also the wide receivers coach, shared the co-offensive coordinator title with Roper since both were hired two seasons ago.

SC ranked tied for 98th for scoring offense in the nation this season, averaging 24.1 points per game.

The Gamecocks (8-4) rank 108th nationally in total offense, averaging just 340.2 yards per game. In his first year, Carolina fielded three starting quarterbacks before the job was earned by Jake Bentley. Rice is expected to hire Stanford offensive coordinator Mike Bloomgren, according to ESPN.

SC has fired the assistant coach who called its offensive plays.
