Spurrier gets extra year on contract
Coach Steve Spurrier entered the season under a little pressure, but he appears to have the Gamecocks headed in the right direction. At least, the administration thinks so. A contract extension was recommended for Spurrier on Dec. 1 and this was just the formal step of making it offical so no real news here as the gamecock faithful knew this was coming.
Spurrier is 35-27 in five season with the Gamecocks.
The Gamecocks went 7-5 this season and begin practice Tuesday to play Connecticut in the PapaJohns.com Bowl on Jan. 2 in Birmingham, Ala.
