Steve Spurrier announced his resignation from South Carolina and the game of college football at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

During his time with the Gamecocks, Spurrier became the school's all-time winningest coach with his 86-49 record. Spurrier held a 228-89-2 career record in 25 seasons as a head coach with Duke, Florida and South Carolina. He is only the second coach to record the most wins at two SEC schools, the other being fellow legend Paul "Bear" Bryant.

Former players, fellow coaches and football commentators took to social media to thank the head ball coach on his career in college football.
