When you dedicate your entire life to one craft, it’s difficult to move on. That appears to be the case for legendary college football coach Steve Spurrier.
In a recent interview, Spurrier discussed whether he would ever return to coaching.
At 72 years old, it would be a stretch to expect Spurrier to receive a high-level coaching offer, but what about at the high school level? That’s something the Head Ball Coach is open to.
“I don’t want to be a head coach. There’s too much involved with the head coach,” Spurrier said, via Noah Feit of The State.
“If it’s a high school, or junior, well they don’t have junior highs anymore. Just high school, or somewhere there to coach quarterbacks and pitch the ball around. That might be something, something I want to do again. It would just have to be the right situation.
“The only part I miss is the quarterbacks, the offense, the team, the players, that kind of stuff,. I did it for 30 years and that’s pretty good, that’s long enough … It’s time to do something else.”
Steve Spurrier coaching high school kids? Yes, please. And immediately turn it into a new Netflix documentary.
During his coaching career which spanned nearly three decades, Spurrier won a whopping 228 games, including a national championship with the Florida Gators.
