Steve Spurrier, take a bow.
As the Head Ball Coach heads off into retirement, the South Carolina athletic department gave him a parting gift.
On Tuesday morning, a tribute video was released celebrating Spurrier and all of the accolades he achieved as coach of the Gamecocks and throughout his Hall of Fame college football career.
Here’s a short list:
- 1966 Heisman Trophy winner
- Nine-time Coach of the Year
- Eight conference championships
- 27 First-team All-Americans
- 143 All-Conference players
- 1996 National Championship
- Winningest coach in South Carolina history
- Four straight bowl victories
- Three consecutive top-10 finishes
- Back-to-back 11-win seasons
Intertwined with Spurrier’s resume highlights were videos of some of the most memorable wins and games the coach was a part of while on the sideline for South Carolina.
The 60-second clip ended with “HBC” to honor the one, the only, Head Ball Coach.
