Students and alumni everywhere were mildly surprised to learn that Will Muschamp, head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks football team, was given his job through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Muschamp, who boasts the worst offense in the known universe, was granted the job through a side project of the foundation. Instead of sick children, this group gives life changing opportunities to exceedingly mediocre adults. This discovery was revealed after a particularly disappointing performance against Kentucky, which saw the Gamecocks fall 10-17.
In lieu of the discovery, the Make-A-Wish Foundation held a press conference to discuss the appointment. “We originally sent Will to LSU in 2001 per his request.” said foundation executive Bradley Davids. “However, despite the charitable nature of the program, teams just couldn’t handle him being around. We had no choice but to pass him on to a different team every few years. At this point, South Carolina is the only place that was desperate enough to take him in.”
Muschamp is one of many that have been given their dream jobs through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He joins the list of others who have benefited such as Chad Kroeger, Guy Fieri, and George W. Bush.
