In the news.....Spurrier leaving?
Not to steal the latest news headline, sports talk or internet story but I thought all the "Spurrier leaving" stories floating around out there are pretty interesting. I wanted to post it here on LOHD for the readership. Here is the latest in this college football news saga.....keep in mind Larry Coker is still the coach and has not been "let go." I don't think the Ole' Ball Coach will leave SC.....SC presents a challenge to him. Numerous experts have told him "you can not win at USC" and to Spurrier this is the biggest thrill....proving them wrong. He did wonders with SC last year and almost got us playing in the SEC Championship. This year has been a "re-building" year and there have been plenty of positives this season to build on. 2007 is looking good for SC. Let's think.........Steve-O is 61 years old, his wife loves living in SC (she has stated this in the media how she wants this to be the last stop), golf is great in the area, they just gave 250 K to USC for the building program and I think all that factors in to him staying until he retires from coaching at the age of 67. Just my guess and I hope I am right......
CSTV reported on Sunday that South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier is leaving the Gamecocks to become head coach at Miami. The CSTV website first reported the story here, then stuck by it here despite denials from Spurrier during his Sunday teleconference. You can read the 'denials' about the news with this WIS-TV's piece and this article in The State. Also there is this article in The Miami Herald.
What do you guys think? Is Spurrier leaving USC? Why or Why not?
