'I'm having a blast': Former Spurrier QB coach Mangus likes life with S.C. State program

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- For more than a month now, G.A. Mangus has been making the trip from his home in Columbia to Orangeburg for South Carolina State football activities and practices.

The quarterbacks coach for Steve Spurrier at South Carolina for the past seven seasons has yet to get a signed contract with the SCSU program, but Bulldog head coach Buddy Pough says he is sure the contract will be taken care of by the athletic department in the near future.

“I think he’s (Mangus) right on the verge (of being under contract),” Pough said with a smile after a recent workout. “Maybe in the next month or so we will have it all straight; maybe by the time we play game three, we will have it all straight.”

The same goes for former South Carolina and Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Cory Peoples, most recently cornerbacks coach at Charleston Southern. Both Mangus and Peoples were positioned directly behind the backfields of their respective sides of the ball during the entirety of the first scrimmage of the preseason at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium.
