Steve Spurrier is in his eighth season as head coach for South Carolina University. Spurrier is a former two-time All-American quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner (1966) and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a player. Coach Spurrier has led teams to 7 Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championships and one National Championship (1996). Spurrier introduced a pass-oriented offense (known in the sports media as the ("Fun 'n' Gun"") in contrast to the ball-control, rush-oriented offenses that were traditionally played in the SEC. His innovative offensive schemes forced many coaches in the SEC to change their offensive and defensive play-calling. Now in his 22nd collegiate season, Coach Spurrier has compiled a 197-75-2 (.723) won-loss record as a major college head coach, including a 55-35 mark (.611) at Carolina.
