Fans will always know Steve Spurrier as “the Head Ball Coach,” but for the past couple years, he has been the Head Ambassador of the UF athletic department. As of this weekend, he’s officially a football coach again.

The Orlando Apollos, Spurrier’s Alliance of American Football squad, held its first practice Saturday. It was Spurrier’s first time coaching since stepping down at South Carolina during the 2015 season.

“Just coaching again was a lot of fun,” Spurrier said after the team’s first practice, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “We’ve had about three days to meet and they’ve absorbed everything we’re trying to teach.”

The HBC is clearly excited about his new team of former college football players not on NFL rosters.

“That might have been the best first practice that I’ve ever had as a head coach,” Spurrier said. “If we had to play a game tomorrow, we could play.”

The Apollos will play their first game of the season Feb. 9, 2019 against the Atlanta Legends.
