Coming from a guy who bailed on his team mid-season, this is hardly surprising:
Steve Spurrier was already enjoying retirement but said he’s enjoying it even more after seeing some of the new NCAA rules, particularly the early signing period and players taking official visits in April, May and June. “I sort of liked an offseason. There is no offseason now,” Spurrier told ESPN. “It’s year around, and guys go, go, go, but a lot of guys like that. They don’t go to the beach. They don’t play golf. They don’t travel. They don’t do other things in life. I think it helped me last 30 years as a head coach because I did have an offseason.”
Serious question: of all the great head coaches in college football history, was Spurrier the least hard-working? If the answer is yes, that’s kind of a compliment, if you think about it.
