Columbia, SC (AP) – University of South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier has once again reiterated that he is not too old at 70 to coach the Gamecocks.
Spurrier repeated his position in response to reports that time is catching up with him on the sidelines, saying Wednesday that he is not leaving South Carolina.
The coach made similar comments last week during the Southeastern Conference (SEC) media days. That hasn’t stopped the questions about how long Spurrier might remain the Gamecocks coach.
Spurrier says questions about his future plans did not come up when the Gamecocks went 11-2 three straight seasons from 2011-13, but sarcastically notes that it’s suddenly an issue after South Carolina went 7-6 last year.
Spurrier says he plans on coaching “a long time”.
