Gamecock football fans haven’t heard the last of Steve Spurrier.
At least if they have satellite radio, they haven’t the last of the former South Carolina football coach.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, Spurrier is joining SiriusXM’s College Sports Nation. Beginning Tuesday, Spurrier will appear on the channel three times per week, including every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon, every Wednesday from 5-6 p.m., and every Thursday from 8-9 a.m.
Spurrier currently serves as an ambassador for Florida, where he won a Heisman Trophy as a player and a national championship as a coach.
Spurrier had been hired as an “ambassador” in Columbia, but ultimately returned to Florida after resigning as the Gamecocks football coach midway through the 2015 season.
Spurrier coached collegiality for 26 years at Duke, Florida and South Carolina, compiling a 228-89-2 record. He won the 1996 national championship as the Gators’ coach. Spurrier led the Gamecocks to their only SEC East title, three consecutive 11-win seasons and was 86-49 in 10 1/2 years at the school.
Spurrier, who won the 1966 Heisman Trophy as Florida’s quarterback, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a player in 1986. He’s the fourth person to be elected to the Hall as both a player and a coach.
