Legendary coach Steve Spurrier recently had his memoir titled “Head Ball Coach” released on Tuesday, September 6. The book will go in depth about his career as a professional NFL player and coach, and he will get into the reasons for his leaving South Carolina mid-season. Spurrier will also share other distinct memories and challenges he faced in the sports world, and hopefully give his readers some additional insight. The memoir will go on sale for $28 and the coach himself will be at select bookstores around the east coast to so a signing for it’s release.
The Miami Beach, Florida native was always a star athlete beginning from a young age, and even though it seemed that baseball might be his sport, he quickly was noticed for his football skills by the time he got to college. After attending the University of Florida, Spurrier entered the 1967 NFL Draft where he was selected in the third round by the San Francisco 49ers, with whom he played for between 1967 and 1975. In 1976 he did a brief year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before retiring as a player and then going back to his university to work as the quarterback coach. By the time of his retirement in 2015, Spurrier had coached for eight college and professional teams, including the Washington Redskins and more recently, the University of South Carolina.
Spurrier was excited to announce the release of his newly authored memoir titled “Head Ball Coach” which hit the shelves earlier this month. It’s a good read for sports fanatics out there, or anyone who wants to get a peek into the athletic industry from someone who spent so much time in it.
