According to sources, USC offensive line coach and running game coordinator Shawn Elliott is one of the coaches under consideration by Coastal Carolina for its head coaching position. The Chanticleers fired David Bennett Friday night.
Elliott is in his second season on the Gamecock staff. He is credited with helping develop the Gamecock’s running attack which is 27th nationally at 198 yards per game. Elliott is a Camden native who’s only other coaching stop has been at his alma mater of Appalachian State.
Elliott is the second member of the Gamecock stuff to be linked to the Coastal opening. Receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Steve Spurrier Jr. also is of interest to the Coastal administration.
