Bruce Feldman with Fox Sports is reporting that Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart has emerged as the leading candidate for the head coaching job at South Carolina.

The 39-year-old Smart was the 2012 AFCA Assistant Coach of the Year and the 2009 Broyles Award winner as college football's top assistant coach. His D is No. 1 in the nation in yards per play; No. 2 in run defense and No. 3 in the nation in total defense.

Steve Spurrier resigned as the head coaching at South Carolina in October and was replaced by Gamecock offensive line coach Shawn Elliott on a interim basis.

The Gamecocks are 3-8 and 1-7 in the SEC.

With the best mentor(s) in the college game ?
