Last year, offensive genius and South Carolina head football coach, Steve Spurrier decided to relinquish his play calling duties, but heading into 2015 season, he has decided to take his seat back atop the play-calling throne.
“I plan to be the playcaller again,” Spurrier told reporters after the Gamecocks’ spring practice Tuesday. “I did delegate at times last year, but I usually took over before the game was over. But I certainly plan on doing it, and I’ll be ready to do it, and go from there.”
“Same reason I did several years ago — it wasn’t going very well,” Spurrier told reporters when asked why he handed off play-calling responsibilities last season. “… You make a bad call and you say, ‘Aw, dumbass, why did I do that? Maybe somebody else can do it better.’ And then you realize it’s not necessarily the play call, it’s just what happens.”
Last season the Gamecocks headed into the season as one of the top teams in the country, but sputtered to a disappointing 7-6 finish. Now back at the helm, Spurrier will look to turn things around for a South Carolina team that never seems to fully live up to their potential.
