Steve Spurrier may never win another football game, but he can still entertain a crowd.
The SEC legend lent his opinion on just how he was brought into the world during a public speaking engagement at the American Football Coaches Association on Monday. As has been noted previously, Spurrier’s father, J. Graham Spurrier, was a Presbyterian minister.
“Thank the lord that preachers get horny, too,” Spurrier said via a tweet by ESPN’s Travis Haney. “That was my first divine appointment.”
Spurrier is widely considered one of the top coaches of his generation. He was a collegiate head coach for 25 seasons before suddenly resigning in October as South Carolina’s coach.
“It beats working. It’s a great profession,” Haney tweeted via Spurrier, who declined to rule out coaching again.
Spurrier also had some advice for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, who will lead his top-ranked Tigers against Alabama on Monday evening for the national championship.
“Dream and visualize your goals,” Haney tweeted per another Spurrier quote. “I give Dabo Swinney a lot of credit for doing that, the mental part of the game.”
