(TheBigSpur.com)-Former Florida head coach Will Muschamp is in a good spot. He gets $6.3 million from the Gators and will be in high demand for high-profile defensive coordinator positions around the country, particularly in the Southeast.

On ESPN's College GameDay Saturday morning, expert Kirk Herbstreit said it was his guess that Muschamp would end up at either South Carolina or Auburn.

Earlier this past week, sources indicated that Muschamp was "unlikely" to take a position with the Gamecocks, but on the South Carolina end of things, there was still some optimism that a deal could be worked out. The key with any discussion will be the future of Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier and assurances about job security.

The Tigers, of course, have a veteran defensive coordinator in Ellis Johnson, though they have struggled at times this season on that side of the ball. Muschamp was on the Auburn staff from 2006-07.

Texas A&M, Florida State, Alabama (if Kirby Smart gets a head coaching job) and the NFL also have been mentioned as possible destinations for Muschamp.

Regardless, where Muschamp lands could end up being one of the most talked about assistant coach hires in recent college football history and deservedly so. Muschamp is a talented coach who will be a successful head football coach again at a major program (or in the NFL) one day. Things just didn't work out with the Gators.
