ORLANDO – South Carolina Head Football Coach Steve Spurrier took time out of his busy schedule this week to sit down with Larry Vettel for a rare one-on-one interview airing exclusively on Sun Sports this weekend.

Will Air in Sun Sports’ CHEVY TAILGATE SATURDAY Lineup on Both the Friday Evening REC WAREHOUSE COLLEGE KICKOFF Show and Saturday’s Special Florida-South Carolina Live Pre-Game Show.

As Spurrier prepares for this weekend’s much anticipated match-up between the Gators and the Gamecocks he reflects on his memories of coaching at Florida in a revealing conversation about playing his former team and alma mater.

Steve Spurrier Quote (on still being an icon in Florida)

“I appreciate it and I think I certainly had a special relationship with just about all the Gator fans. There are some that are glad I’m not there – which is fine. I can’t make everybody in the world happy, but there are certainly some that I hopefully had a good relationship with and hopefully they’ll pull for South Carolina. And when we play Florida…they’ll pull for Florida of course. I think most of it’s like that and that’s the way it should be.”

Sun Sports will televise the Spurrier interview during CHEVY TAILGATE SATURDAY’s Rec Warehouse College Kickoff live on Friday, Nov. 11 at 6pm (replays 9:30pm & Sat. 9:30am) and during Sun Sports’ special live Gator-Gamecock Pre-Game Show Presented by Regions Bank on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 11:30am-12:30pm.
