Arkansas defensive line coach John Scott, Jr., reportedly will be joining Will Muschamp’s staff at South Carolina and has told close friends in Fayetteville he is leaving.
Scott and Barry Lunney, Jr., are the only coaches to stay on the staff following Chad Morris’ hiring just over a year ago. Scott was on the Razorbacks’ staff for two seasons.
Scott is a native of Greer, South Carolina, about 100 miles from Columbia. Both of his children live in the area.
Last season Scott coached the interior defensive linemen while Steve Caldwell coached the defensive ends.
Scott’s leaving would be the first staff change under Morris.
