According to The State (S.C.) newspaper, police arrested and charged Gamecocks quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus with nuisance conduct.
According to police, officers saw Mangus “facing Main St. urinating on the street curb and roadway” in Greenville. An officer approached Mangus and he was “unsteady on his feet and he had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his person.”
After speaking with officers, Mangus received a $470 ticket and was taken to the Greenville County Detention Center.
Mangus released the following statement. “Last night I acted irresponsibly and I deeply regret my actions,” Mangus said. “I take full responsibility. I would like to publicly apologize to Coach Spurrier, (athletic director) Eric Hyman, the entire team and everyone associated with the University of South Carolina.”
Head coach Steve Spurrier confirmed that Mangus has been suspended indefinitely and expressed his disappointment with his actions.
Before joining the Gamecocks staff, Mangus served three seasons as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Middle Tennessee. He play quarterback at Florida from 1988 to 1991, two of those seasons coming under Spurrier.
