College football saw one of its most influential figures leave the game this week when Steve Spurrier resigned from his coaching post at South Carolina on Tuesday.
Though Spurrier took the Gamecocks to heights the program had never reached in his 10 years at the helm, he had his most success at Florida.
Spurrier had a dominant 11-year coaching tenure with the Gators. He won one national championship, six SEC championships and he was named SEC Coach of the Year five times.
Spurrier also had much success during his playing days in Gainesville. A quarterback, Spurrier won the Heisman Trophy and the Walter Camp Trophy in 1965 and was a consensus All-American in 1966.
The Florida football program honored their former player and coach with this awesome tribute video:
Spurrier posted a 228–89–2 record during his college football coaching career.
