Carolina’s Spurrier Shows No Signs Of Slowing Down

gfx - they said itSteve Spurrier is currently 68-years-old.  He’ll be 69 in a just a matter of weeks.  And he’ll be 73 when his most recent contract runs out.

His teams have also gone 33-6 over the last three years and he’s showing no signs whatsoever of slowing down.  He recently told The Spartanburg Herald-Journal that he feels just fine as he heads toward his eighth decade on Planet Earth:

 

“I think my memory’s OK.  People tell me my memory’s OK and I can still call the plays so why stop?  I’m not going to brag about being a workout guy but that’s what I do.  I’ve got to believe everything I read in the health magaine, that those people who work out regularly, routinely, have a chance to live healthier lives.  That’s just sort of what I do.  I encourage everybody else to do it.”

 

Spurrier also refused to rule out the possibility of coaching into his 80s.  “I don’t plan on it.  I don’t plang on doing any more than three or four years in a row, and all of a sudden three or four pass by and I feel like I did five or 10 years ago.”

As we’ve noted previously, one wonders if Spurrier’s success will change the way presidents, ADs and fans look at older job candidates.  Carolina could have past on hiring a then-60-year-old coach… as many programs would have.  But the Gamecocks took a shot and the image of their football program has been turned on its head as a result.

Americans are living longer than ever before.  As a result, more attention should be paid to a coach’s resume than to his birth certificate.  (Hey, wait a second.  Has anyone ever seen Spurrier’s long-form birth certificate?)
