Florida football dedicates field to former coach Steve Spurrier
The "Head Ball Coach" Steve Spurrier was back in The Swamp on Saturday night to be recognized for his great Gators playing and coaching career as Florida's field was dedicated to him.
The Gators changed their official field name to Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Stadium in honor of the 1966 Heisman winner and Hall of Famer. Spurrier addressed the Florida crowd prior to its season opener against Massachusetts.
Spurrier ended his speech leading the famed Mr. Two Bits chant as well as striking Usain Bolt's signature pose to the packed stadium sparking a massive applause.
Spurrier ended his coaching career midway through last season when he resigned from his position at the helm of South Carolina. Spurrier compiled 319 wins in 26 seasons, including 150 while leading the Gators.
