Steve Spurrier calls into Shawn Elliott's radio show

  Steve Spurrier is a former Heisman Trophy Winner and a National Championship coach.

Steve Spurrier hasn't been gone from the University of South Carolina for long. And, for fans, perhaps it seems like he's not gone at all.

After all, it was just Tuesday that the HBC formally announced he was resigning as Carolina's top man, and, just two days later, Spurrier called in to interim Gamecock head coach Shawn Elliott's radio show.

Spurrier started the call by bragging about his grandson who just threw his first high school touchdown pass before asking if the same crew was still hanging out at Wild Wing Cafe, the restaurant where the show is hosted.

The former Heisman Trophy winner then lended some advice to his successor and confirmed he was done coaching, saying, "There's other things in life besides coaching football."
