South Carolina's Lattimore leaving spot in Gamecocks program

By  | 

Marcus Lattimore is leaving his position as South Carolina football's director of player development after two seasons in the job. Lattimore was the Gamecocks' former record-setting running back who was hired by the school after the NCAA would not allow him to become an on-field assistant because his foundation ran camps that could involve South Carolina prospects.

Lattimore helped South Carolina win its only SEC Eastern Division title and was seen as a can't-miss NFL running back. However, he suffered two significant knee injuries in his sophomore and junior seasons and could not recover enough to play in the pros.
