Default How much longer do you think we have Spurrier?

He's 68 now. Do you think he leaves at 70, or does he pull a Paterno and sticks around until he's in his 80s?

Default Re: How much longer do you think we have Spurrier?

That gets asked a lot on here every year. I personally think it's dependent on when he wins the SEC Championship. If we win the SEC this year I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see Spurrier call it a career. I know he says he has a few more years in him and we are winning and he's having fun, but I think it would be pretty tempting for him to go out on top after accomplishing his biggest goal here. I see a maximum of 5 more years out of him.

As long as his health will allow him. I don't believe he wants to know what life is like without being a head coach. If I had to guess, I'd say another 6-7 years, maybe less if we go back to the old 6-6 season days.

If he is having as much fun as he claims, he may not ever leave. Who knows.

Default Re: How much longer do you think we have Spurrier?

If we win it all this year, this is his last season. If we don't win it all but win the SEC...this may be his last season. If we don't win either, 4 more years max in my opinion.

Now as to who to hire....it's hard to tell 4 years down the road who will be there, but I wouldn't mind if we hired Lorenzo Ward. He's young, energetic, knows his defense, and it would be an easy transition. GA Mangus as the OC and Shawn Elliott as the Asst. OC/Run Game Coord. with Steve Spurrier Jr. as our Passing Game Coord. and Recruiting Coord.

I want him to stay until he croaks lol. If he doesn't, and we end up looking: Lane Kiffin for sure. No matter how terrible his team is, he will get the number 1 ranking and ESPN love forever.

In all seriousness though, I'd want to pick someone who's had success like Urban Meyer or Chris Peterson. I'd probably shy away from Meyer because of all the off the field stuff he's been privy to. Peterson does well, but it's all been in a crummy conference. Spurrier's son might work out well too.

Replacing Spurrier = no easy task

Do you think he'd stay if we won the BCS championship this season? He doesn't strike me as the type of guy who wants to live in Florida playing golf for the rest of his days.

If we won something, an SEC or Natty, he is going to be in a casket before he leaves here. That's just what I think. The man lives and breathes College Football, I doubt he ever quits. Unless like he says, things go terribly south on him.

I will say at least until the 2016 year. He said he would stay HC for Connor Mitch's tenure. I think He'll only leave before then only if he has health issues. Wouldn't it be nice to have 8 wins in a row on Clemson before Spurrier leaves?

Ward is who I would like to see as the HC after Spurrier as well. He is the most important coach on our staff, besides Spurrier. Hiring Ward would most likely keep our current staff together, which would be great for our future. Who knows how long Spurrier will be the HC, it seems like every year he say's 4 or 5 more years.

Yea this topic is overplayed.

But my preference for HC when he leaves atm would be Coach Ward or Charlie Strong


The more we bring this topic up the more reporters ask about it and recruits wonder about it because people use it against us.

He told Connor Mitch he would stay during his time at SC.

But..his goal is a sec/national title and he won't leave until he gets that.

Seeing as Ward single handely picked Botkin and Brown, our defensive coaches would stay the same - seeing that Adams would probably stay.

If Ward were our HC this would be our coaching tree:

Ward - HC (Defense Coord.)
Mangus - OC (QB)
Elliott - Asst. OC (Run Game) OL
Spurrier Jr. - WR (Passing Game) Recruiting Coord.
Sands - RB/TE (Asst. Run Game Coord)
Robinson - Specialist (Special Teams Coord)
Adams - DL
Brown - Secondary
<New Coach> - Secondary


In all honestly, I think our "new coach" would also be Addison Williams. Addison played here at Carolina as a CB. He never had much PT once Stephon Gilmore committed and took over the starting spot (and moved everyone down one). Addison graduated and became a GA with the program. He has since took a job at a small college working with the secondary. He was coach Ward's boy because he knew everything about the playbook but just wasn't athletically as gifted as some. He's young, and relates to people well. Would be a good recruiter.

He's 37 SEC wins behind Bear. If he keeps on winning 6+ SEC games a year, I think he goes for that. (Which would be about 6 years).

Ah yes the weekly "How much longer do you think Spurrier will coach thread". Now we have this one out of the way maybe someone can start the "Who do we get to replace Spurrier thread".
