Krantz will work with special teams and linebackers.

Krantz owns nine years of coaching experience, including seven seasons in the SEC as part of three different programs.

Lattimore was expected to take a position Muschamp's staff at USC two years ago.

"Kyle has been with me for the past five years and thinks like we do", said Coach Muschamp.

After serving as a defensive coach with coordinating stints aplenty, Muschamp earned his first head coaching gig with the Florida Gators in 2011. During the summer of 2011, he worked as an offensive quality control volunteer at Northwestern.

Muschamp got his coaching start as a graduate assistant at Auburn in 1995.

The 46-year-old Muschamp earned $3 million per year in his first two seasons at SC, but gets a raise to $4.2 million in 2018. He returned for his junior year and had some promising performances before he suffered an even more disastrous injury to his other knee. He set a SC record with 38 rushing touchdowns and finished sixth in school history with 2,677 rushing yards.

"No one knowns how to handle adversity and success as a Gamecock more than Marcus Lattimore", Muschamp told ESPN. "As a standout high school player, he could have gone anywhere, but chose to stay home and play for his state's flagship university. He will be a great addition to our program". He was eventually drafted in the fourth round in 2013 by the 49ers, but he was never able to return to his original form.

He wanted to get back to SC for a while, especially since Will Muschamp was hired as the head coach, but he was forbidden to do so by the NCAA because he has a foundation that involves some Gamecocks recruits. He's now married to the former Miranda Bailey.
