Steve Spurrier has received a two-year contract extension
that will keep him at South Carolina through 2017. The university's board of trustees approved the extension Monday. There was no salary increase in the deal. Spurrier is scheduled to again earn $3.3 million in 2013.
"I appreciate the confidence the board, the president and the athletics director have shown by extending my contract," Spurrier said in a statement. "We have achieved a lot of goals but have not yet won the SEC championship. Hopefully, we can do that within the next couple of years."
