With the dust mostly settled when it comes to South Carolina’s 2023 recruiting class, it’s no surprise that the fan base’s eyes are on what this team will look like next season.
There are still some major dominoes that will fall in some form in the coming weeks, such as quarterback Spencer Ratler and whether or not he’ll suit up in garnet and black next season.
The search for an aggressive coordinator influences Rattler’s decisions. Dowell Rogaines left his alma mater in Arkansas to take the offensive coordinator position at Columbia, signing a three-year deal worth $1 million a year.
The trait that head coach Shane Beamer was looking for in the new offensive coordinator was the ability to work well with everyone else, essentially the ability to fit into the family culture he created.
When speaking to the media about the upcoming Gator Bowl on Thursday afternoon, defensive coordinator Clayton White and special teams coordinator Pete Lembo were both asked about Loggains and gave positive remarks.
White points out that he has known Loggains for some time and believes he will fit in well with the staff.
“It’s like we met in the summer  And obviously I talked to him a little bit during the season. I think he blends in very well with this staff and the people in the building.i’m looking forward to [seeing] what he can do. ”
Lembo mentioned conversations with mutual friends, including one shortly after Rogaines was hired. It didn’t take long for the Arkansas native to impress him as a coach and as a person.
“How many people texted or called me when they heard we were hiring him, a mutual friend, and people who had such a high opinion of him as a person, as a coach. I don’t know. Come here early, he came to my office, sat down, and we talked about everything for almost an hour and a half. While I sat there getting to know him, I just , I kept thinking about what an amazing person this guy is. How excited I am to get to know this organization and more about him.
Loggains has been on the job for less than two weeks and seems to fit in well with South Carolina.
