While his time with the Florida Gators brought him a national championship, Steve Spurrier seems to be having the time of his life as the head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks. He’s now entering his 10th year at the helm here in 2014, and it’s beginning to become difficult to imagine the program without the Ol’ Ball Coach leading the charge.
So, how much longer should we get used to seeing Spurrier in Columbia? Well, if his recent comments are any indication, he could be around for another five years, which would mark 15 years with the SEC school.
“Going into (Year)10? I think it depends on if you want to go anywhere else — see, I don’t want to go anywhere else now,” Spurrier said Wednesday. “I could go between 10 and 15 (years) maybe. But if you want to go somewhere else, then you ought to go 10-12 then go somewhere else 10-12.”
In his tenure there, Spurrier has led the Gamecocks to eight bowl appearances, winning four of those, and the program shows no immediate signs of falling off, so Spurrier completing a full 15-year stay is completely possible.
