(Columbia) - Head coach is saying he's not leaving--again.
Monday, Spurrier shot down rumors that he might be interested in taking the head coaching position at the University of Alabama. That job came open when the Crimson Tide fired Mike Shula Monday afternoon.
"I have no intention of leaving South Carolina," Spurrier said Monday in a written release. "It's always flattering when a South Carolina coach is rumored for these big time programs. This one will die down in two or three days, too."
Spurrier's name was mentioned last week when it became clear that Larry Coker was going to be fired at the University of Miami. Spurrier said he had no interest in that job either.
Spurrier is currently in Florida on a recruiting trip.
