Spurrier gets extra year on contract

USC Board of Trustees approved a one-year contract extension for Spurrier on Monday, taking him through the 2013 season. His salary will remain $1.75 million.  This was mostly done for recruiting purposes but still a deserved move in my eyes.

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 Bowl on Jan. 2 in Birmingham, Ala.
