I'd be surprised if someone offered him after only one year as a coordinator.

With our defensive players we'd have people beating down our door to get hired.

I think we'll hold onto Ward a couple more years. But when we are looking for a new DC you guys know the first name to come up will be Bud Foster lol

If Ward feels the need to leave then let him go. Spurrier has proven to be able to not only replace coaches but upgrade coaches in the process. I have no doubt we'd have coaches lining up to coach Clowney & Co.

Travelin, there may be a reason for that. Not being negative towards coach Lawing at all here because I think he is a helluva position coach but some people are just not "management" people.

Man, so many amongst our fanbase are just waiting, expecting, to take a hit. This mentality is a drag.

He's not going anywhere. Wouldn't be surprised to see an extension and raise after this year.

Another coach altogether?

I've been thinking this could happen for the last few weeks, and especially after the way we stopped clemzun on national tv. Hope Ward stays at USC a long time, but we all know to well how the college coaching carousel works. Especially in the SEC.

Are you kidding me? No way any team is gonna give Ward a shot as a head coach when he only been a head D.Coordinator for one year.LOL. But in the event it did happen, I would say no to Ellis Johnson he shouldnt have left us high and dry b4 bowl game last year. I would offer Brad Lawing the job first, then if Lawing didnt want the job the DLine coach. if dline coach didnt want it, then i say you try and bring back Charlie Strong...yea right but worth a shot

I agree, and with what he's done with the DL when he has the players, why disrupt a good thing?

Maybe we should call him the silent partner, since some on here don't think using his name is necessary.(Legal)

Kinda like last year when we all got blind-sided with the EJ departure? Just don't think about it and it won't happen?

Hopefully he stays here, but to think he won't get any lucrative offers to coach elsewhere is ridiculous.

Ward has had the title DC for four years.

Lawing is the DL coach. lol.

What does fans being blind sided have to do with anything?

Gamecock fans seem hell bent on expecting the worst. It's pathetic.

Brown will get a look if the defense continues to play well/improves, imop (I'm talking about in like 3 years). Ward learned from foster so he might not be in such a hurry to move to greener pastures. He has it pretty good here with basic autonomy and laid back HC who lets him run a lot of the program.
