Think about offensive geniuses throughout the history of college football and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is one of the first names to come to mind.
Spurrier was at the peak of his offensive powers when he coached Florida in the 1990s. The coach took the SEC by storm with an innovative, pass-heavy offense which deviated significantly from the ground attack many teams in the conference ran at the time. His Gators became the only team to score at least 500 points in four consecutive seasons (1993-1996).

In a recent interview with the Golf Channel’s David Feherty, Spurrier spoke about how he developed his offensive system. He said the freedom he was given while an offensive coordinator at Duke was crucial.
Spurrier also explained why he famously wears a visor during games. The legendary coach said that he used to wear a hat, but switched to a visor when he realized he would get less grass stains on visors than he would hats after throwing them in anger on the field.
