Spurlock played multiple positions during his Ole Miss career (2001-05). In the NFL, he caught on as a return specialist and receiver. Spurlock bounced around the league from 2006-to-2014.
In 2015, Spurlock got into coaching at the high school level. His first FBS gig came in 2017 at UTSA as a quality control assistant who worked with special teams and linebackers. For 2 seasons (2018-19), Spurlock was on staff as wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator for FCS program Southeastern Louisiana.
Spurlock returned to Ole Miss in 2020, joining Lane Kiffin’s staff as a senior analyst. He held the position for 2 seasons before joining the Green Bay Packers as a special teams quality control coach.
