COLUMBIA, S.C. – After 11 seasons leading the University of South Carolina football program, head coach Steve Spurrier is retiring according to Sports Illustrated’s Thayer Evans. The Head Ball Coach is one of the most polarizing players and coaches of all time. Spurrier is 228-89-2 at Duke, Florida and South Carolina.

Spurrier led the football program to new heights, leading the Gamecocks to three straight 11-win seasons from 2011-2013. He’s also engineered the team to nine bowl games, with a 5-4 record.

Fooball Scoop reports Spurrier will announce his retirement Tuesday and an interim will be named.
