Steve Spurrier Explains Why He Was Surprised South Carolina Fired Will Muschamp
Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports
Steve Spurrier is now to coming to Will Muschamp’s defense after South Carolina fired him last Sunday...

“Yeah, I was surprised that he was let go Sunday night,” Spurrier said. “His record is almost exactly like Coach Lou Holtz’s was when he was there for his five, six years or whatever. I don’t know what all happened, but I guess the new president said, ‘We need to make a change.’ His record was pretty consistent with most South Carolina coaches over the years. We were fortunate in 2009 and ’10 to recruit some really, really top players like Marcus Lattimore, Stephon Gilmore. But his record, if you compare it to all the other coaches in South Carolina history, I don’t think it was that bad.”

He was a known quantity when our jackass of an AD was bamboozeled by Spurrier and Sexton into hiring him.
