South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier spoke with GoGamecocks The Magazine’s Joseph Person during the SEC spring meetings in Destin, Fla., about the upcoming season, his decision to let Steve Spurrier Jr. serve as the primary play-caller and his unwavering goal to win an SEC championship at USC.
Q: You’re coming up on your fourth season. Is the South Carolina job harder than you thought it would be?
A: It’s about what I expected it to be. We’ve made progress. We’ve got better players and hopefully we’ll coach better. We’re looking forward to seeing what happens this year.
Q: You’re a guy who likes to win, expects to win. Have you reached a frustration point?
A: Well, no. There’ve been reasons we’ve not been quite as successful as we had hoped. And we’re trying to correct those areas. We’ve got some new coaches. I know we’ve got better athletes. So we’re going to kick it off and believe we’re going to have a very good team this year.
