One of the biggest coaching names in college football is calling it quits.
South Carolina's Steve Spurrier will announce his retirement effective immediately, according to most major news sources. A Heisman Trophy winner at Florida and a first-round NFL draft pick in 1967, Spurrier started his college head coaching career by going 20-13-1 at Duke in the late 1980s. He returned to his alma mater in 1990, going 122-27-1 in 12 seasons at Florida, winning six bowl games and a national championship. He then tried his hand in the NFL, but went 12-20 with the Washington Snyders. He then returned to the college ranks at South Carolina, where he was in the middle of his 11th season. He went 86-49 with the Gamecocks, winning five bowl games.
Spurrier retires 13th among college coaches in wins, eighth in bowl games, and seventh in bowl wins.
