With his credentials, it is hard to imagine Spurrier will be anything other than a first ballot Hall of Famer.
Spurrier was an All-American and Heisman Trophy winner during his playing career. He has already been inducted as a player. As a coach, he finishes with an overall NCAA reccord of 228–89–2 — including an 11-10 record in bowl games.
Best of luck to Spurrier in the next step of his career and thanks for all of the great memories.
