Steve Spurrier explains how he plans to coach differently during inaugural AAF season
Steve Spurrier admits the end of his South Carolina tenure was bad. Walking away from his football team at midseason is something some may never be able to look beyond but for Spurrier, it was the right move to make at the time.
That final poor season under his watch in Columbia may have got that way in part by taking a CEO approach to the football program, instead of being more hands-on with the Gamecocks. That’s something Spurrier is vowing not to do during the inaugural AAF spring football league season.
The AAF kicks off Saturday, Feb. 7 the weekend following the upcoming Super Bowl and the Orlando franchise is coached by Spurrier. In a recent media availability, Spurrier explained how he plans to coach as he used to during inaugural AAF
