The Head Ball Coach could be back in South Carolina for a game this fall.
According to a report by The State, South Carolina has had “preliminary discussions” with Steve Spurrier about honoring him at a game this fall at Williams-Brice Stadium.
Spurrier coached the Gamecocks from 2005-15 and is the winningest coach in program history. He never missed a beat after succeeding Lou Holtz, taking South Carolina to a bowl game in each of his first two seasons. After a 6-6 campaign in 2007, Spurrier again rebounded the program to the tune of seven consecutive bowl appearances before he resigned mid-way through the 2015 season.
Three times he led South Carolina to 11 wins, the best mark in school history. 2011’s 11-2 season was just the second double-digit win season in program history and the first since 1984.
“There is nothing set, but if something happens that they want to do that, it would be fine with me, probably,” Spurrier told The State. ““You will have to check with them. All I can say is nothing has been set … If it happens, fine. If it doesn’t, that’s fine too.”
