Lattimore told WACH Fox in an interview Thursday that he can still have the foundation but can't be present at any of the camps that are held throughout the state. After one of the most decorated careers in SC high school football history, the Duncan, S.C., native burst onto the scene in 2010 when he rushed for 1,197 yards, leading the Gamecocks to their first SEC Eastern Division title and earning SEC Freshman of the Year accolades. In his freshman season, he was one of the best backs in the country, totaling more than 1,600 scrimmage yards and 19 touchdowns. His sophomore and junior seasons were abbreviated after sustaining major knee injuries. In a game against Tennessee, Lattimore discloated his knee cap, tore every single ligament in the knee and suffered nerve damage. The fact that he was drafted at all, let alone as high as the fourth round, is a testament to just how good he was when he played.

Lattimore did not play a down in the National Football League despite being selected in the fourth round of the 2013 draft by the San Francisco 49ers.

Lattimore, who had previously been the head coach at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School in Columbia, will serve as the Gamecocks' director of player development for life skills, Muschamp said.

Lattimore will also oversee the Gamecocks' Beyond Football program, which exposes players to off-field careers. "He could have gone anywhere in the country and chose to stay here. He'll be a tremendous asset to our organization".
