INTERIM HEAD COACH TO BE ANNOUNCED … 

Less than three months after vowing to coach another five years, University of South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is retiring, multiple media outlets are reporting.

“No timeline immediately known,” reported GamecockCentral.com’s Chris Clark. “He informed (the) team tonight.”

Sports Illustrated‘s Thayer Evans broke the news nationally.  Shortly thereafter, FootballScoop.com reported that Spurrier’s retirement was effective immediately and that an interim head coach would be named on Tuesday morning.

According to The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper, the interim job will go to current quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus.

Wow … really?

That report was disputed, however, with multiple media outlets reporting early Tuesday that the interim gig would go to offensive line coach Shawn Elliott.

STEVE SPURRIER
STEVE SPURRIER

Spurrier, 70, has won 228 games in 26 seasons as an NCAA Division I-A coach – including a school-record 86 games at South Carolina over the last eleven years.  He also won a dozen games (against 20 losses) during two seasons as head coach of the National Football League’s Washington Redskins.

Prior to his arrival in Columbia a decade ago, the Gamecocks had won 10 games in a season just once (in 1984).  After a middling first few years at the helm, Spurrier’s teams embarked on an unprecedented run of success – recording three straight 11-win seasons, three straight Top Ten finishes and three straight New Year’s Day bowl victories from 2011-13.

The Gamecocks also captured an SEC Eastern Division title in 2010 and won a school-record five straight games over arch-rival Clemson from 2009-13.

Last year South Carolina slipped to a 7-6 record, though, and rumors of Spurrier’s imminent retirement prompted numerous recruiting defections.  In fact the Gamecocks have lost considerable ground on the recruiting trail in recent years – with Spurrier shouldering his fair share of the blame.

This year has been an unmitigated disaster for his team, with the Gamecocks (2-4, 0-4 SEC) finding themselves totally outmatched in conference play.  After a 45-24 thrashing last week at the hands of Louisiana State University and Heisman Trophy frontrunner Leonard Fournette, the Head Ball Coach had apparently seen enough.

Spurrier was named South Carolina’s head coach on November 23, 2004 – three days after an ugly bench-clearing brawl against Clemson put an ignominious end to the 32-year college coaching career of Lou Holtz.

He finishes his Gamecock career with a 6-4 record against Clemson, a 5-5 mark against Tennessee, a 5-5 mark against Florida and a 5-6 mark against Georgia, arguably the four most important games on the South Carolina schedule each year.

Spurrier also guided the Gamecocks to a 5-4 bowl record – not bad for a program that had won just three bowls in more than century of football prior to his arrival.

While Spurrier took the Gamecock program to unprecedented heights, he never duplicated the level of success he achieved during his twelve years at Florida.  He posted a 122-27-1 mark in Gainesville – winning six SEC championships, eight division titles and one national title in 1996.

As a player, Spurrier won the 1966 Heisman Trophy at Florida prior to embarking on a ten-year career in the NFL.

Within moments of the news of Spurrier’s resignation breaking, speculation about possible long-term replacements was already swirling.

AFTER SPURRIER: OFFENSE? OR DEFENSE?

Few expect Mangus or Elliott to be serious contenders for the job, but there’s obviously precedent in the Palmetto State for interim head coaches to take the reins of major college programs – and experience success.  For example Dabo Swinney, a wide receivers coach, took over as head coach at Clemson after Tommy Bowden was fired during the 2008 season.  After a rocky first three years, Swinney led the Tigers to four straight 10-win seasons.

Clemson is off to a 5-0 start this season and is ranked No. 6 in the nation – due in no small part to Swinney cleaning up on the recruiting trail.  Of course the driving force behind the Tigers’ success on the field the last few years has been defensive coordinator Brent Venables – who needed just two years to turn a porous unit into the nation’s No. 1 defense.

Maybe that’s the model the Gamecocks should follow: Installing a “hype man” as head coach and focusing their efforts on landing top tier coordinators.

I hear you but he graduated from Science Hill High in Johnson City, Tennessee where he played all through his high school years. He had a stellar athletic record (lettering in football, baseball and basketball all 3 years) and where he got his training for walking on water …………
Spurrier is quoted as saying he would be grateful for the rest of his life for the Florida coach recruiting “a skinny kid from Tennessee”
I ain’t never heard one person from the Tricities area (that’s Bristol, Kingsport, & Johnson City, TN) mention him in a good light (if they mention him at all)…….

I suspect both sudden resignations were due to his desire to go out on his own terms at a time of his choosing. I imagine he is “comfortable enough” financially to do so, and that is why he pulled the plug instead of having it pulled on him.

If he had stayed and Ray was told to give him the axe at the end of the season, one wonders what his golden parachute would have been. I’m sure there are people here who can answer that question, as well as what other “bye-bye” scenarios would have netted him.

In Spurrier’s case, “retired immediately” is probably an apt moniker. He has plenty of dough and he will be on the golf course quicker than a cat with its tail on fire. Screw formality. Also, the “inside baseball” reasons he’s outta there are probably far more numerous, complex, and political than any of us will ever know.

Spurrier SLEW Liberals at SC October 12, 2015 at 11:00 pm

When Spurrier got to USC, he had Liberals on the USC Board like Mungo and Darla Moore working against him.

They thought using the football program to forward Liberalism was the objective.

Spurrier asked Dr. Eddie Floyd to back him, and he’d take on the old, backward cretins of the leftwing Establishment that had so infested the USC program…It took guts but Spurrier did it… And Mungo passed – may he RIP- and Moore was FIRED. She could not use Hubby’s money to buy failure at USC.

Spurrier plowed forward, and slew the old Liberal Dragons of the past..and moved USC Upward…

From what I’m hearing, there were some things that Spurrier wanted to do, that flies in the face of modern-day liberalism- but it would make his team better….and he was told NO. So he said Good Bye. I’ll not let liberalism beat me.

Tanner may leave nest, if USC does not get it’s act together, and get rid of the leftwing, failed rule that has so damaged it over the years.

Squishy123 October 12, 2015 at 11:05 pm

Hell Tanner may leave the nest not on his own doing, I don’t know if he has the guts to tell G.A. “The Urinator” Mangus that he doesn’t get the job at the end of the season. He’ll pull another Holbrook and just let the current guy lead regardless of how shitty of a coach he is. Tanner is not an Athletic Director, he’s a Baseball Coach.

Good time to make BIG changes October 12, 2015 at 11:08 pm

Actually I don’t disagree w/ you about Tanner. He needs to take his baseball program back. He’s not cut out for the politics of the AD’s office.

I’m just glad they fired Eric Hyman, he was part of the battle Spurrier had to fight to get a fair deal for the USC program.

Tiger fans are all happy seeing as how Spurrier owned them (his winning % is higher than Clemson’s all time % yet Tigers always claim they own USC, so by default Spurrier owns Clemson. Its called logic and Tater fans don’t ever understand that). Also they were scared with as bad as USC is this year the #Clemsoning was going to happen to them again against Spurrier and USC. Still will happen though with the interim coach. #SOYBEANWIND is going to choke at some point this year

well since we are talking about this particular coach that the story is about right now, I think the fact the Clemson fans being happy the man that owned him are gone is 100% relevant, or do you want to keep talking about what happened back in 1913? Fact is if he has a higher winning % as the head coach against Clemson, every Clemson fan that claims they own Carolina (with a lower winning percentage) has no choice but to admit he owned them by their own argument. So how does that look? This story is about Spurrier not the Roaring 20’s.
