South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is set to retire.
The news was first reported by SportsIllustrated.com's Thayer Evans and confirmed by multiple sources to GamecockCentral.com's Wes Mitchell and Chris Clark.
The news was broken to members of the team following South Carolina's practice on Monday night. According to sources, the retirement is immediate and the Gamecocks will search for an interim coach from the current staff, a coach that is expected to be named on Tuesday morning. Offensive line coach/running game coordinator Shawn Elliott and quarterback/tight ends coach G.A. Mangus are both candidates to be named interim head coach.
Spurrier, 70, is the Gamecocks' all-time winningest coach and in the midst of his eleventh season at the helm of South Carolina's program. He won a national championship at Florida in 1996 and led the Gamecocks to the program's best years on the gridiron. USC was 33-6 from 2011-2013 and won a divisional crown in 2010.
