Skip Holtz will retain title, not duties
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina football coach Lou Holtz said Wednesday that he's taking over the offense from son Skip.
"I plan on running the offense," Holtz said.
When asked if Skip would retain the offensive coordinator title, Holtz said, "I'm not able to say anything at this time."
The Gamecocks finished the season 5-7, with Holtz firing four assistants after a season-ending 63-17 loss to Clemson.
Skip Holtz has been offensive coordinator since his father took over the program before the 1999 season.
