Greg Adkins

Greg Adkins is in his third season at South Carolina. He spent the 2021 and 2022 seasons serving as an offensive line coach on Shane Beamer’s staff before transitioning into an analyst role with the offensive line in 2023.

Adkins came to Carolina after having spent the previous three seasons as the offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Marshall University, working under head coach Doc Holliday. Marshall posted a 24-12 record from 2018-20 in what was his second tour of duty with the Thundering Herd.

Adkins has a long history at Marshall, as he began his coaching career at his alma mater, mentoring the defensive line, tight ends and offensive line in Huntington for five seasons from 1991-95. He was on the staff that won the 1992 Division I-AA national championship and appeared in three other I-AA title games (1991, ’93 and ’95).

Between his two tours of duty at Marshall, Adkins coached the offensive line at six schools, including four Power-5 schools, two of which are in the SEC. His resume includes stints at Georgia (1996-2000), Troy (2001-02), Tennessee (2003-08), Syracuse (2009-12), Oklahoma State (2015-17) and Charlotte (2018). He also handled recruiting duties at Syracuse, Tennessee and Troy; coached tight ends and defensive line at Georgia; mentored the tight ends at Tennessee; and served as Charlotte’s run game coordinator and interim offensive coordinator.

Adkins also has NFL experience, having a two-year stint in Buffalo as the Bills’ tight ends coach from 2013-14.

Born March 25, 1968, Adkins is a native of Cross Lanes, West Virginia. He played four seasons as an offensive lineman at Marshall, graduating in 1990.

Adkins has three children: Nick, a former lefthanded pitcher at Marshall; Nate, a tight end who finished his collegiate career at South Carolina after transferring from East Tennessee State and is now with the Denver Broncos; and Natalie, a junior at Tennessee.
