COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) New South Carolina football coach Shane Beamer has made the final hires for his on-field staff.
Beamer has hired former Marshall offensive line coach Greg Adkins for the same job with the Gamecocks. He had earlier hired ex-Illinois defensive ends coach Jimmy Lindsey to handle the South Carolina defensive line and Torrian Gray, the former Florida defensive backs coach, to lead the secondary.
The school's board of trustees approved the contracts of Adkins and Lindsey on Friday. Adkins was given a two-year contract at $550,000 a season while Lindsey will make $350,000 a season in his two-year deal.
