Dowell Loggains has been announced as the new Gamecocks offensive coordinator by head coach Shane Beamer. In addition to overseeing the offense, Loggains will also handle the quarterback coaching duties. Like former USC offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield, Loggains brings NFL experience to Beamer’s staff. Prior to working the last two seasons as the tight ends coach at Arkansas under Sam Pittman, Loggains worked for 16 seasons in the NFL, including seven seasons as an offensive coordinator.
The USC board of trustees approved a three-year deal for Loggains at $1 million/year. Additionally, the board approved a raise from $265,000 to $725,000 for Special Teams coordinator and associate head coach Pete Lembo. The Special Teams unit shined this season behind punter Kai Kroeger and kicker Mitch Jeter, earning Lembo a place as a Broyles Award semifinalist.
