Citadel football coach Brent Thompson will join Clemson's Dabo Swinney and South Carolina coach Will Muschamp at the S.C. Coaches for Charity event on Wednesday in Greenville.

The seventh annual event, sponsored by former Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry's foundation, also will include Wofford coach Mike Ayers, South Carolina State's Buddy Pough and new Furman coach Clay Hendrix.

The event, set for 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville, benefits the Fisher DeBerry Foundation and charities selected by participating coaches.

Thompson's charity is the Lowcountry Fellowship of Christian Athletes, while Muschamp has chosen the Edgewood Foundation Center and Swinney's charity is Dabo's All-in Team Foundation.

Each coach also chooses a "Community MVP" to be honored. Thompson's is Citadel team physician Dr. Kenny Caldwell, a Citadel graduate and former Bulldogs football player.

Muschamp's "Community MVP" is former Gamecock and Carolina Panther Travelle Wharton, while Swinney chose current Clemson star Hunter Renfrow.
