Spurrier gets sizable pay raise with extension

Steve Spurrier AP

When South Carolina announced back in December that Steve Spurrier had agreed to a contract extension, it was reported that there would be no raise included in the tweaked deal.

As it turns out, that’s not even remotely the case.

USC’s Board of Trustees gave final approval Friday to Spurrier’s two-year contract extension as well as a $425,000 raise.  Spurrier is now signed through the 2015 season and will make $3.3 million in 2012.

“We certainly appreciate our University Trustees, President and Athletics Director for their commitment to our coaching staff that keeps us very competitive in SEC coaching salaries,” said Spurrier. “We have an excellent group of coaches here that can really coach, recruit and represent the University of South Carolina in a first class manner.”

As intimated in his statement, Spurrier wasn’t the only Gamecock football coach to be taken care of by the board.  The four assistants still on his coaching staff from the 2011 season were all on the receiving end of raises, and all of the Ol’ Ball Coach’s assistants were given two-year contracts.

Shifting some of the financial love over to his assistants came at Spurrier’s request.

“”A key element of having a nationally-prominent program that competes for championships is having a top-notch coaching staff, and I think we have that in place at South Carolina,” athletic director Eric Hyman said in a statement. “We are fully aware of what is taking place in the marketplace and have made some contract adjustments accordingly. Specifically with football, we are extremely pleased that our program has been very competitive and are supportive of Coach Spurrier’s request to give his assistants multi-year contracts.”

    Anything to keep the Ol’ Ball Coach around. He’s one of the most colorful characters in football. It will be a boring boring sport when he leaves :)

    Did Mangus get a raise? Part of his punishment was to be no extras.

  3. mrslay1 says: Feb 10, 2012 11:30 PM

    Said it before and I’ll say it again, What Spurrier has done at USC is nothing short of incredible! Even Dr. Lou couldn’t turn around that program. He is one of very few in a speical class and USC as anyone would be lucky to have him. I hope he stays in the game a few more years before he heads to the golf coarse for good.

    If you want to keep coaching talent in a conference like the SEC, you have to pay out the bucks.

  5. thraiderskin says: Feb 11, 2012 12:43 AM

    ummm… I thought the point was to get to big games, like a BCS bowl. If USC fans are happy with him, who am I to complain.

  6. mrslay1 says: Feb 11, 2012 1:34 AM

    Don’t know who or what you are, but building a program takes time and the right peices of the puzzel and one step at a time. If USC was in any other conference in the country they would have already been to and won a few BCS games! Just like Arkansas!

  7. thraiderskin says: Feb 11, 2012 11:06 AM

    It does take time… But the man has been there since 2006(?). Though it shouldn’t matter, this a program that I’ve heard talked up a lot over the last 4 years and still not even one BCS bowl. I’m clearly an outsider looking in, but in the grind that is the SEC, doesn’t seem like expectation should be higher? I respect the hell out of the SEC, but “one of these things are not like the other.”

  8. thraiderskin says: Feb 11, 2012 11:10 AM

    I’m really sorry for the the poor grammar/broken sentence. “doesn’t IT seem like expectationS should be higher?”

  9. thegamecocker says: Feb 11, 2012 11:37 AM

    @thraiderskin

    The expectations are ALWAYS high and will continue to be. But week-in / week-out, the SEC schedule is such there are no “gimmee games” in league play. Even Kentucky is improving and notice I put Kentucky football BELOW Vandy! Coach Franklin is doing an OUTSTANDING job building a program down in Nashville. But it takes time and commitment. THE University of South Carolina (get it Babo…I mean Dabo?) was 9-5 in 2010 and 11-2 this past season. To me that’s PROGRESS! In 2012 we play LSU in Baton Rouge, Arky at home and Georgia at home. THE University of South Carolin opens with a feisty Vandy team in Nashville. I’m very happy for Coach Spurrier and his Staff. I just wish the author of this piece would refer to him RESPECTFULLY as the HEAD BALL COACH!!!

    In 2011 SC played those power houses of Navy, Citadel, ECU and Miss St also. In 2010 and 2011 SC’s best two consecutive years in their history, they are 5-6 against teams with winning records on game day. This year SC won their first bowl game of the century.

    The only thing Crapolina fans have to hang their visors on is Clemson’s short comings. The team they have beaten three straight but are 4-6 in the last ten and 40-65-4 against overall.

    In the 120+ year history of SC football they have only won one conference championship and that was in the ACC before most all of us were born. Is SC the only school that currently has a registered sex offender on the active coaching staff? Mangus was convicted of taking a leak in public which is considered a sex offense in SC.

    Oh yeah, SC plays in the SEC. Thats like their claims to be tough because their brothers are bigger. Before the last two seasons, SEC fans considered SC right there with Kentucky and Vandy as easy wins and frequently scheduled as home coming opponants.

    Football is football, and Spurrier deserves whatever he gets, but there’s a story about him that goes way beyond sports…

    When Spurrier was at Florida, Holtz learned that his wife had cancer. Without initiating a call to Spurrier directly, it was learned by Spurrier that Holtz wanted to bring his wife to Shands Hospital in Gainesville because of their oncology department. Spurrier contacted the head of the department, who he’d previously never spoken to, and within minutes the department head had called Holtz and had a meeting scheduled at Shands for later that same week. That’s why when Holtz left South Carolina, he recommended they pursue Spurrier as their next coach, and the obvious friendship between them was formed. I don’t know him personally, but friends of mine that do, say that Spurrier does more things like that, which people never hear about, and that’s why his players love him and the school administrators do as well.

    @florida727

    I’m not surprised by your story about Coach Holtz and the action THE HEAD BALL COACH took. Those are the kind of stories that speak to the REAL person Coach Spurrier is. Don’t worry about Jonkybon….he’s a LIL CLEMSON BITZ BOY frustrated that Clemson is now OWNED by THE UNIVERISTY OF SOUTH CAROLINA. Ignore the fool.

  14. woebegong says: Feb 12, 2012 11:22 AM

    I am not sure I would say three victories in a row is exactly owning Clemson. If you say that, can Clemson say that they own S.C. since they lead the series 65-40-4? Football success goes in cycles at every school, and is constantly changing. Both teams should bee pretty good this year, so it will be an interesting game.

  15. mrslay1 says: Feb 12, 2012 11:27 AM

    I am greatful for the story from florida727. I have always known the ol ball coach is a great man as well as coach and have nothing but respect for him. What he has done at USC is outstanding. I would fill sorry for Clemson, but listening to baby-sweeny sound off on Head coach S was almost as bad as bigger baby gundy shooting his mouth off like wussy he is. And then there is the ….OH wait…WVU just scored again!!
    As a Razorback I am glad that we with USC (being kinda bros in coming into the league together) are finally getting close to the top. I think it will be cool if the Hogs and USC could be in a rematch in the SEC title game nect year!

  16. thegamecocker says: Feb 12, 2012 11:55 AM

    well, the fact is the Clemson folks prefer to look at ancient history while I prefer to examine recent history. In recent history, I would like to know if they have won anything against USC in the past 3 years? They may have won a baseball game or two but they have not won any series. Football speaks for itself as Carolina has won the last three and we’ve won them in a convincing fashion. I realize that winning is cyclical but I’m just having some fun at the expense of our sister school to the North. This is just fun. Now what you did, being in the military and serving your country, that is serious business. Putting your life at risk to protect our country, allowing us to go back and forth at each other on these boards, that is real important and no joking matter. As I said once before, we might disagree on some fun things, but YOU will always have my respect.

  17. thegamecocker says: Feb 12, 2012 12:02 PM

    @mrslay1

    It would be great for us to meet in the SEC Championship game. Petrino is really getting it done at Ark. The Razorbacks have beaten Carolina convincingly the past two seasons and I’m hoping for a closer game this coming season when you come to Columbia. Paul Feinbaum on Sirius/XM radio thinks neither of us deserve to be in the SEC. Unless your school is a legacy member or has won a football NC, then he looks down on you. But we’re both getting closer to that goal. As far as basketball is concerned, Carolina has facilities second to none! Beautiful practice facility and Colonial Life Arena is one of the league’s newest facilities. But we need a head coach who knows what he’s doing. Coach Horn is a nice enough person, but he is far from Coach Frank McGuire. Ark Bball is doing well and once that team learns to play and finish on the road, look out! Anderson is a solid coach and was schooled well under Nolan Richardson. When I’m not rooting for Carolina, I’m pulling for the Hogs!

  18. woebegong says: Feb 12, 2012 12:06 PM

    Understand, and it is fun every once in a while. Now truth be known, Clemson has been a little over rated the last couple of years in the poll, but I don’t fault them for that. It is tough to get prepared for tough games with a soft schedule. UGA learned that crystal clear last year. I think the toughest game UGA will have this year is S.C. Missouri will be second, because nobody in the SEC knows a lot about them, and they will have a good passing game. I know even less about Texas A&M, but with a new coach in place and a lot of new assistants in place, I think they will have a rough road their first year in the SEC.
    Thanks for the military comments. I hope the military stays strong after this next series of cuts to strength and benefits coming down the pike.
    Have not read a lot of news about Lattimore. Is he doing OK with his recovery from his knee injury. Hate to see these young guys work so hard on the field and then have a freak injury set them back. He will be a first rounder when he goes to the NFL.

    BTW when Holtz’ wife was first diagnosed with cancer, Spurrier was failing at coaching the Washington Redskins. He was long gone from UF. Lou Holtz only recommendation for the SC job was his son Skip. I for one am so glad the SC board of reagents ignored Skip and hired the fraud instead. The SC board of reagents never learn and hire one burn out with past success after another. Crapolina fans really should do some research, but that requires investigative reading.

    One bowl win this century and not even a sniff of a BCS game shows the quality of the biggest pretender in college football.

    Time for the Shamecock fans to dump on me because EVERYTHING I say is 100% accurate!!!

And, no, the story is not made up, it’s FACT… but since it paints Spurrier in a positive light, it’s easy to see how an idiot like you would try to discount it.

    Regardless of where Spurrier (allegedly) WAS, he arranged for the head of oncology to see Holtz’ wife. That is an undeniable FACT. Can you PROVE it never happened? Because I can PROVE that it DID.

    OCTOBER 9th, 2010
    USC 35, #1 Alabama 21

    Folks, this game wasn’t even close… Carolina jumped out to a 14-3 first quarter lead and then cruised. They beat the crap out basically the same Alabama team that everyone fawned all over this year and said was so great.

    This was only about 16 months ago… Carolina has come a HUGE way from 10 years ago when Alabama regularly beat them 60-3 or so…

    No progress… lol… you make me laugh…

    Thank you for your comment. It was a monumental win for SC in 2010. Unfortunately, Carolina could not sustain the prosperity as we lost to Kentucky the following week. Sometimes I think college kids read the press clippings and think all they need to do is “show up”. The great coaches like Mr. Saban, Coach Petrino, the Head Ball Coach, & Coaches Miles and Richt, find a way to overcome this. But even then, upsets happen. This past season, Coach Spurrier was able to maintain the momentum despite having to dismiss QB Garcia and the injury to Marcus Lattimore. Frankly, I thought he deserved SEC Coach of the Year consideration after leading Carolina to a 11-2 record. Unfortunately the only upset was to nemesis Auburn. That hurt but the Gamecocks are indeed making huge strides to compete in the toughest football conference in the country.

    Florida, before you call people out for denying your BS stories, Lou Holtz’ wife was treated at Duke, not at Shands as you falsely claimed. Any proof you have is as fabricated as your BS story. Even if she was seen at Shand, which she wasn’t, that doesn’t mean Spurrier had anything to do with it. Lou Holts has coached all over the country and works for ESPN, he has more contacts than your hero.

    The fact that you need to play your childish games of insulting me, tells everybody else here how full of crap you are. There is no doubt that Steve Spurrier has done nice things, but I wont give him credit for something he had no part of.

    Now if our host Mr Taylor wasn’t such a Shamecock homer as well, you would have been banned a long time ago for your personal attacks.

    Actually the Pretenders aka SC took advantage of UGA and UF in transition years. Ga kicked SC’s arse everywhere but the score board last year as per Stevie Spurrier. SC no longer benefits from playing UGA week 2 and will likely be beaten like the SEC step children they are. UF now has a full year with their HC. Mussouri has been added to the East as well. SC will be lucky if they beat out UT and Vandy for fourth in the SEC East this year.
    Yeah Spurrier did a much better job then Saban and Miles did and should have been considered for Coach of the Year…LOL You do know that drugs are illegal! Gawd I’d love to meet a SC that didn’t act stoned and wasn’t delusional. Just one!

  26. mrslay1 says: Feb 13, 2012 8:52 PM

    Delusional is who? Georgia got beat by south Carolina. They did not lose and then get handed a victory. I have nothing be respect for Mark Richt, and he certainly deserves better than the crap fan base he has. That same fan base that wanted him fired till the last few games last year. From your post here, I’m sure you were probably carrying one of the stakes for his heart. Anything can happen on a given Saturday as we know , but South Carolina should clearly beat the bulldogs and win the east next year. Their loss being to Arkansas who would also wipe the turf with the bull puppy’s. And no I not a USC fan, just a SEC fan who knows what coach S has done. Seems you dogs can’t get past his success against you at Florida or USC.

  27. woebegong says: Feb 13, 2012 9:09 PM

    You made much too broad a statement about when you assume the fan base of UGA all wanted to can him. The majority did not want any such thing. As for what will happen on the football field, I would not be so quick to judge the UGA DAWGS either. S.C. won the game last year, and that is a fact. However, UGA played them hard and it is safe to say, if UGA’s special teams had not given up that long trick play and the offense hadn’t made so many errors with fumble and interceptions, the game might have been a whole lot different out come. The UGA defense actually only gave up 17 points in the game. S.C. lost the east last year because they lost to Auburn. The DAWGS beat Auburn 45-7, so I wouldn’t be so quick to put down the DAWGS and discount them. UGA didn’t have any depth at RB and a makeshift OL, but still managed to put together a half decent season. I think you will see the complete UGA this year and I don’t believe that any team, be it Arkansas, Alabama or LSU is going to wipe the field up with the DAWGS. The S.C.-UGA game this year is going to be a very good one. Before you discount one teams chances and denigrate them, you might want to do some research. A lot of the rating services don’t agree with your point of view and your disparaging remarks.

  28. thegamecocker says: Feb 13, 2012 9:48 PM

    @Woebegone

    The Georgia – Carolina game last season was exciting and probably could have gone either way. Before last season began, there appeared to be much pressure on Coach Richt to win or leave. I am a daily listener to Paul Feinbaum on Sirius/XM radio. Many of the callers from Ga called for Richts head. The fact is if Ga would have played either Arkansas, LSU, or Alabama during the regular season, chances are SC would have won the SEC East. It’s as good an argument as you’re presenting when you cite all the plays SC in the Ga game last season. BTW that game was played in Athens. I’m not saying Ga didn’t improve during the season because they did. But last season, I do feel Carolina was the better team. This years game should also go down to the wire. The pundits project both teams to be good. But Carolina’s 2012 schedule includes LSU in Baton Rouge, Arkansas & Georgia in Columbia. One final thought: I think Missouri is going to be a difficult game for both schools.

  29. woebegong says: Feb 13, 2012 10:40 PM

    In 2014, we will cycle back over to the top teams in the west division so time will tell. I have said since they published the schedule that S.C would be the toughest game for the DAWGS followed by Missouri. They had to replace 3 lineman on both sides of the ball, but they do have a good passing game. I am not too sure about their running game, because I haven’t followed them much, but I beleive they lost their number one from last year. The key to UGA success will be the OL. I am sure we will have a decent running game and we have a good passing game, but the line will be young. Very athletic but inexperienced. S.C. will have to get the most of Shaw I believe, and Spurrier is going to have to teach him not to have happy feet and take off too quick from the pocket. I just don’t think he will last if he tries to play like an option player. S.C. strength I think lies mostly in the defense and Lattimore. I hope the kid, is recovering OK because He is fun to watch with the ball, except of course when we are playing them. It should be a very good game, and I believe it will probably determine the SEC east Champions next year. The west will be strong but I really feel if UGA and S.C. play up to their potential, they can be worthy opponents for the group over there. By the way, Paul Finnebaum said that Alabama would lose two games last year and LSU would end up on top. I tend to take announcers, radio personalities and most journalist with a grain of salt. They just look at raw statistics and play probabilities most of the time. You can’t measure a teams heart sometimes when you do that.

  30. thegamecocker says: Feb 14, 2012 8:57 AM

    @Woebegone

    Carolina plays Arkansas from the West every year and that is just the way it is. Is Auburn the team Georgia plays from the West annually? In 2012 Carolina plays LSU & Arkansas, two of the top three teams in the West. Why is it that Georgia does not play Alabama, LSU, or Arkansas? I think we play one other team from the West but it seems Georgia’s schedule is set-up to win the East again barring upsets. How are the schedules made in the SEC? Would you agree that Carolina has a more difficult schedule than Georgia in 2012? I too hope Marcus Lattimore will be at full strength next season and agree the Carolina “D” will be its strength. And you’re correct: it is difficult to measure a teams heart which can take it a long way. We have some back-up at QB who were red-shirted last season in case Shaw runs too much.

  31. woebegong says: Feb 14, 2012 9:20 AM

    Auburn is the traditional rivalry from the west that UGA has played for the last 100+ years, and Alabama used to be on the schedule for alternating years. LSU was also an alternating home and away series scheduled for UGA earlier in the century. Adding these two teams to the conference has messed up everything, as this year we would have played Alabama, which I personally would have preferred at their home and next year they would have been in our house. Now, we have the privilege of introducing Missouri to the SEC.
    There is no doubt that S.C. does have the more difficult schedule, but you have to blame the SEC for that. They are the ones that came up with the changes to accommodate Texas A&M and Missouri. I think, purely from a quality stand point, the SEC is going to regret the day they messed up the best conference in the NCAA just for more money and an increase in the TV market share. They are talking about getting away from the traditional rivalries like UGA-Auburn now, and in my opinion, that just stinks.
    I would rather see UGA play a tough schedule as I believe you can only be the best by playing the best. I really don’t know if my DAWGS will be able to display their full potential, other than games with S.C. and maybe Missouri, but UGA doesn’t have a lot of control over that. On the other hand, S.C. has a chance to greatly enhance their standing playing the tougher schedule, if they can beat those West teams. All in all, it should be an interesting year, one way or another.
    Arkansas is a tough game for you all, but remember, Auburn is just a couple of years removed from the NC, and they have traditionally been pretty strong in the SEC, so the game is never a gimme. I believe the age old axiom that states, on “Any Given Saturday”, especially in the SEC. No SEC team, if it is being coached right, can afford to look past their SEC opponent from week to week. That is what, in my opinion, prepares the SEC teams to win the NC a lot of times.
    As they say, the cream always makes it to the top, so this season will be a good indication, of who has the better milk , so to speak.

  32. thegamecocker says: Feb 14, 2012 1:34 PM

    Well said my friend and I too believe the tougher the schedule, the better the team will ultimately become. Didn’t realize the scheduling havoc putting Mizzou and T A&M had on the conference. But it is what it is and hopefully Carolina will play well enough to steal a win along the line. Just heard that Big East has OFFICIALLY announced that W Va will be leaving as of June 30, 2012. So it will be interesting to see what else takes place i.e. Syracuse and Pitt leaving after this season too. Also, Rutgers is close to arranging a home and home with Arkansas…..Oh my.

  33. woebegong says: Feb 14, 2012 1:49 PM

    I will probably get razzed by this but I see S.C.beating Arkansas this year. I just don’t think they have the defense to stay in a tight ball game.
    I think the big east will not survive. I think a couple of years ago there was talk about merging the B E and the ACC and forming a super conference. I believe the B E will wish they had pretty soon. Unless the way of determining a champion is changed, they most likely, I would think, lose their AQ status. I am still not quite sure if Boise is going to be in the B E next year or the year after.

  34. mrslay1 says: Feb 14, 2012 5:24 PM

    Well here comes the razzing:-) The Hogs will be a full grade better on defense next year. What they lost in the draft will be repaced with as good and the DB’s and Dl have a great level of rotation and players. And of coarse the SEC best offense as usual only way better next year with Knils Davis back.

  35. thegamecocker says: Feb 14, 2012 5:41 PM

    @mrslay1

    You could very well be correct slay…Knils Davis was tremendous before the injury. That QB will be playing on Sundays b/c he can make all the throws. Petrino recruits well and the Hog fan base is tough. The game will be played in Columbia so that helps us somewhat. On the other hand, last time Ark came to Columbia they put a country whipping on us. But we’re a different and deeper team than we were back then. Should be a good game.

  36. mrslay1 says: Feb 14, 2012 6:46 PM

    It should be a GREAT game. The Gamecocks are by far the best team in the SEC east this year and Spurrier and Petrino matching witts… It doesn’t get any better than this. I hope one team gets the national championship game and the team that doesn’t win, ( there will be no looser) gets the other BCS game!

  37. chiefcarnes says: Feb 15, 2012 1:46 AM

    I am an Alabama fan, but I liked Spurrier when he was at Florida and I think he has done a spectecular job at South Carolina.
    I hope he stays there a long time, HE makes the games very interesting.
