Steve Spurrier’s coaching days may be over, but his time with University of South Carolina isn’t.
The 70-year-old, who resigned as the Gamecocks’ head football coach on Oct. 13, has accepted an ambassador role with USC, he told The State‘s Josh Kendall on Monday.
“I go into the McGuire room halftime of (some basketball) game, see some booster people, shake a few hands, hang out with them a little bit,” he said. “I meet with (athletics director Ray) Tanner a little bit, whatever he needs.”
When Spurrier inked an extension at USC in 2013, part of the deal stated that, if he wanted, he could remain at the school following retirement. He said he officially transitioned to his new job in January.
Spurrier added he’d like to become the associate A.D. for women’s basketball, but that post is currently occupied. He spent a decade in charge of the Gamecocks’ football program and is the winningest coach in South Carolina history.
