Spurrier made it clear he won’t be putting his trademark visor and headset back on as a head coach – ever.
“I don’t want to be a head coach. There’s too much involved with the head coach,” Spurrier said according to The State (in Columbia) after he was honored at Duke, where he was the HBC prior to taking over in The Swamp. “If it’s a high school, or junior, well they don’t have junior highs anymore. Just high school, or somewhere there to coach quarterbacks and pitch the ball around.
“That might be something, something I want to do again. It would just have to be the right situation.”
Spurrier coached collegiality for 26 years at Duke, Florida and South Carolina, compiling a 228-89-2 record. He won the 1996 national championship as the Gators’ coach.
