Reports: After loss to Tigers, Spurrier retires
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA - Fresh off a loss to the LSU Tigers, media outlets are reporting USC will part ways with its coach through Steve Spurrier's retirement.
Reports indicate the team was notified following practice Monday evening. USC lost to the Tigers Saturday, 24-45. The Gamecocks were the home team even though the game was in Tiger Stadium. The game was moved to Baton Rouge because of historic flooding in South Carolina.
Sports Illustrated reported the news first and Columbia-area reporters started spreading the story not long after.
USC will find an interim coach from within its operation. An announcement is expected this week.
Got a feeling Tiger Stadium would have set an attendance record (and not 42,000..) had they known the ticket was for Spurrier's last game.— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) October 13, 2015
