Steve Spurrier: You Basically Just Quit, Right?
Steve Spurrier chose to retire from coaching this year when his Gamecocks were 2-4, and 0-4 in the SEC. With his competitive nature and cocky attitude, I find it hard to believe that he would have stepped down if his team had been winning instead of losing. He cited no health issues to prompt this leave, so why not just announce that he would be stepping down at the end of the season? Hang in their and endure this season with the kids he recruited. I suppose his years of successful coaching earned him the right to bail out midway through the season. To me, it still looks like the quit on all his players and coaches. But he came trough all his this squeaky clean. Just doesn't seem right to me. What do you think...?
