Quarterback Mitch Trubisky walks with Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains at rookie minicamp at Halas Hall on May 12, 2017. Loggains will reportedly be South Carolina's next offensive coordinator.

Former Arkansas tight ends coach Dowell Loggains will reportedly be the next South Carolina offensive coordinator, according to Brandon Marcello of 247sports. Loggains spent the last two seasons in Arkansas after a 15-year NFL coaching career.

His first NFL job was with the Dallas Cowboys in 2005 as a scouting assistant. He joined the Tennessee Titans in 2006. In 2012, he earned his first offensive coordinator position after the Titans promoted him from quarterbacks coach.

Loggains served as offensive coordinator for the Bears from 2016-2017 after Adam Gase left to coach the Dolphins. He left to be Gase’s offensive coordinator in Miami in 2018 and followed him to New York from 2019-2020. In total, he served six different NFL franchises.

Loggains played college football for the Razorbacks from 2000-2004 as a quarterback and holder. In total, he appeared in 50 games, but as a quarterback, he completed one pass for 11 yards and two rushes for five yards.

The announcement would be Gamecock head coach Shane Beamer's first coordinator replacement as head coach after previous offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield left the program to fill the same position at Nebraska.
