    Could Spurrier Return to The Swamp? 3

    3 hours ago With Florida head coach Will Muschamp clearly on his way out, many have begun to wonder who will replace him. CBSSports.com college football writer Dennis Dodd has a name in mind -- South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier. Spurrier started his coaching career in Gainesville in 1978 as the Florida quarterbacks coach, then later returned as the Gators' head coach from 1990-2001. Dodd thinks Spurrier returning to Florida for one last stint would be a fitting end to his coaching career. "Let the speculation begin regarding Muschamp's replacement and let it begin with Steve Spurrier," Dodd wrote. "How cool would it be if Spur Dog ends his career as sort of a "bridge" to the next guy at Florida? Who knows, the way he's going Spurrier might last another 10 years. He's 69, looks 49 and all he wants to do is win." Dodd believes that if this is the move that both Spurrier and Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley want to make, it needs to be done sooner rather than later, so that they can get started on the recruiting trail. "Spurrier will have to answer the speculation -- publicly and soon. Right now, he might be the most sensible replacement. There is no obvious answer, no name that stands out -- except Spurrier at the moment." "But no one could blame Spurrier for coming home," Dodd continues. "Not South Carolina, not the media, certainly not Florida fans who need a special brand of salvation for their program at the moment. Actually, check your calendars. Spurrier is coming home -- Nov. 15, the Gamecocks go to Florida. The question is, will he stay?"

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    I have always been a Spurrier fan. He took UF from the dumps to national championships. But he is older than we are. Maybe he could fill in until a younger person steps up. Better than Muschamp. Texas, take Muschamp back (lol -- my Texas friends were angry when Muschamp the heir apparent at Texas left for Florida.)

    Spurrier seems happy at SC, but who knows.

    Given that this has absolutely no legs at all, apart from Dennis Dodd and CBSSports, I'm thinking Spurrier will not have have to speak to it, as Dodd so egotistically states.
