This weekend, South Carolina Gamecocks fans were watching the team’s postponed game against the Georgia Bulldogs when former coach Steve Spurrier stopped into a local bar for a surprise.
According to Spurrier, after a trip to check on any potential damage from Hurricane Matthew, the Head Ball Coach made a detour in Crescent Beach, South Carolina when to chat it up with some fans while taking in the game.
“I found me a little sports bar down the road. There was a crowd at a little place called Wings on A1A,” Spurrier said, via Josh Kendall of The State. “The manager of the place sort of recognized me even though I had my hat and sunglasses on. My hat and sunglasses aren’t working as well as they used to.
“I found me some buddies there and watched the Gamecocks-Georgia game.”

Unfortunately, the Gamecocks lost to the Bulldogs, 28-14.
Nearly a year ago to the date, Spurrier called it a career when he abruptly retired after a 2-4 start to the season. Spurrier finished his incredible college football coaching career with an overall record of 228–89–2.
