Spurrier dismisses "retirement talk"
- by Administrator 2 years ago
Earlier this week rumors began circulating that the head ball coach was so frustrated with his AD that he planned to step down at the end of this season.
We were sent all sorts of emails and links from those perhaps trying to fluff the rumor.
We reached out to sources within the program and close to Coach Spurrier. The response was nearly immediate and extremely direct. We'll paraphrase as "completely untrue", the actual words used were slightly (ok, significantly) stronger.
Yesterday morning, we put it on The Scoop that the those within the program have confirmed to us that this isn't going to happen.
Last night, Coach Spurrier took it a step further. On his weekly radio show, Coach went out of his way to address this issue, stating for the record that "I really hope to coach about three more years."
Hopefully we won't have to revisit this issue for a few more seasons.
