During his weekly teleconference this afternoon, South Carolina coach Will Muschamp addressed the handshake controversy that occurred prior to Kentucky’s 23-13 victory over the Gamecocks.
Muschamp opened up the teleconference by saying he is disappointed in his team’s actions.
“I didn’t really know anything about this until this morning,” Muschamp said. “Our players are always expected to shake hands regardless of the circumstances, and I addressed it with them and our football team. We are always going to have class and display sportsmanship in everything we do and represent the University of South Carolina in a first-class manner.”
Muschamp said that he called Mark Stoops this morning to apologize for the situation.
“When I found out about it this morning I immediately called Mark Stoops and apologized for whatever ill will there might be, and absolutely Mark and I are one the same page. It never should have happened and we will move on.”
