Spurrier hires Eric Wolford as OL Coach


Wolford comes from the Zooker's staff at Illinois. As you can see from his Illinois page, Wolford is known for orchestrating effective rushing offenses, most notably the Illini's Rashard Mendenhall attack in 2007. The Illini had a drop-off in rushing production in 2008 as they moved, with mixed success, to making Juice Williams the focus of their offense and ran the ball with a RB-by-committee approach. Wolford's track record, however, suggests that 2008's inconsistencies were an aberration. This guy appears to be a solid young coach that can solve some of our rushing and QB-protection problems. So, Gamecocks fans, what do you think about this hire? If there are any Iowa fans still lurking around, feel free to tell us what we need to know about the job this guy did in Urbana-Champaign.
