South Carolina Coach Suddenly Retires After Trojans Fire Steve Sarkisian; Hmm
Pure speculation here but why not, right?
Steve Spurrier suddenly retires – effective immediately – the same day that Southern California fires Steve Sarkisian.
Could he be going from one USC to the other USC?
It’s not necessarily as crazy as it sounds. Spurrier needs a new jolt and USC needs a proven coach.
Sure, Spurrier is 70 and the East Coast USC hasn’t been competitive in two years. But he’s been there too long and things have gone stale. A fierce competitor like him may not be able to pass up the opportunity to take over a team that has enough talent to win, win big, and win right now.
The Trojans need a leader, someone the players can look up to, and Athletic Director Pat Haden needs to make a “splash” hire to get the attention and support of the big boosters. And to save his job.
Haden can’t do John Robinson III so why not Steve Spurrier I? It sure would be a radical move, and that may be just what the Trojans – and Spurrier – need at this time.
