Steve Spurrier has reached an agreement to be represented in media deals by agent Walker Jones at Creative Artist Agency, but that doesn’t mean South Carolina’s former football coach has any plans to be on television any time soon.

“I said, ‘You guys go ahead and negotiate and see what comes up,’ but I don’t see myself being a full-time TV guy at all,” Spurrier told The State. “Maybe a little bit here and there and see how it goes.”

Since his resignation from South Carolina, Spurrier has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Lee Corso on ESPN’s College GameDay when Corso plans to retire.

“That has never been brought up,” Spurrier said. “I guess anything is a possibility, but I am not anticipating that right now.”

Spurrier did not see the Gamecocks’ win over Vanderbilt on Saturday but watched the game tape with USC’s coaches Sunday morning, he said.
