Wednesday letters: Spurrier’s raise was a bit much

— I understand that people get a lot of money for playing and coaching football. What I don’t agree with is University of South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier getting a raise from $3.3 million to $4 million per year.

This should have been given further thought. The money that Steve Spurrier is getting could pay for real needs rather than to a football coach.
