South Carolina has officially announced Will Muschamp as its new football coach to replace the Gamecocks' all-time wins leader Steve Spurrier.

The school announced Muschamp's hiring Sunday evening on its football Twitter feed, introducing ''our new Head Coach, Will Muschamp!''

South Carolina has scheduled an introductory news conference for Muschamp on Monday morning. University trustees will vote on Muschamp's contract before he meets the media.

The 44-year-old Muschamp spent this past season as Auburn's defensive coordinator after being fired after four seasons as coach of the Gators. He is the second straight Florida coach to hold South Carolina's permanent job, following Spurrier, who left in mid-October after 10-plus seasons in Columbia.

Spurrier won 86 games at South Carolina.
