Steve Spurrier may turn 67 in April, but he’s not interested in hanging up his visor just yet. Speaking to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Carolina’s football coach said:
“I didn’t hear much about my retirement this year. It was funny. There were talking to Tom Coughlin. We’re about the same age. They asked him if he was going to hang it up after winning the Super Bowl. He said I’m having more fun now than I’ve had in a long time, I’ve got plenty of energy and I’ve got several more years in me. Of course, that’s what I say. We’ve got the best group of players we’ve ever had at South Carolina since I’ve been here. It would be hard to quit after you’ve accumulated and assembled a strong team that won 11 games last year.
If the time comes when we start going bad, oh don’t worry, I will be the first to say they need somebody else in here. It won’t be any big deal or anything like that. Right now, I’m doing pretty well, physically and mentally. I feel as good as I did 20 years ago. I still call the plays. My mind is OK, I believe. So I don’t know what else I would do right now except for coaching ball.”
In other words, opposing SEC coaches can stop with the “he’s not gonna be there very long” negative recruiting. Not that that tack has worked too well in recent years anyway, as evidenced by the major upgrade in talent at Williams-Brice Stadium.
