South Carolina is to have two defensive co-ordinators for the team next year, reports say.

John Hoke, who comes from the NFL and has most recently been with Chicago, will come on board to coach USC’s passing defense, and current DC Lorenzo Ward will coach the Gamecocks rushing defense.

Ward worked for Steve Spurrier at Florida between 1999-2001, the report from says.

The decision comes as a little bit of a break for Ward, who was in charge of a USC defense that gave up 30.4 points-per-game last year, “good” for 91st in the country. A lot of people felt that Ward would be given his marching orders in the off-season.

The decision was going to be announced on Thursday, but there was a murder-suicide on campus which was obviously more important.
