Steve Spurrier made it clear on Monday that he plans to be back as head coach of South Carolina in 2015 and possibly through 2016, according to GoGamecocks.com:
“I’m good to go,” he said. “I just made about 21 recruiting calls. This is a good situation, and I think we can turn it around quickly. I hope so.”
The Gamecocks current recruiting class, which includes verbal commitments from 27 players, is ranked No. 8 in the country.
As of now, Spurrier believes he will coach at least through the 2016 season.
“Give me two or three more,” he said. “I used to say four or five, now I’m down to two or three. I mean, I could get in a car wreck, but I’m definitely planning on being back.”
South Carolina started the season ranked No. 9 but finished just 6-6 with a season finale 35-17 loss to No. 19 Clemson.
