Immediately after his resignation in mid-October, Steve Spurrier said he didn’t regret not walking away earlier. After some time to reflect, Spurrier seems to have changed his mind.
“After we won the bowl game last year, I should have said, ‘It’s been a wonderful career. Thank you South Carolina. The next guy needs to have a go at it,’ ” Spurrier said Thursday morning on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike” program.
“I thought we had a pretty good team coming,” Spurrier said. “I thought we had a chance to at least be competitive.”
Spurrier resigned on Oct. 13 after a loss to LSU that dropped South Carolina to 2-4 overall. He is the winningest coach in school history with a record of 86-49 at the school. He was 228-89-2 all-time as a collegiate head coach.
“I think Will Muschamp is going to do an excellent job there,” Spurrier said. “He’s an excellent recruiter. He’s working his tail off there now.”
