Former South Carolina football assistant coach Kirk Botkin found an in-state landing spot after Steve Spurrier’s last staff broke up following the 2015 season.
That arrangement lasted only a year, according to reports.
ABC Columbia (WOLO) reported Tuesday that Botkin was leaving the Bulldogs, Bulldogs coach Buddy Pough told WIS Botkin was moving to Texas to coach high school football in his home state.
Botkin was South Carolina’s linebacker coach from 2011-2015, working with the likes of Shaq Wilson and Skai Moore. He played his college ball at Arkansas and spent four years in the NFL.
In Orangeburg, Botkin helped shave three points off the Bulldogs average allowed (26.1 to 23.1) and rank in the top 30 nationally in scoring defense.
Botkin’s son Lane just finished up his time at A.C. Flora and signed with The Citadel.
