Steve Spurrier banner comes down at South Carolina

Steve Spurrier banner

The Steve Spurrier era at South Carolina is officially over.

An 85-foot high banner featuring Spurrier that hung outside Williams-Brice Stadium in South Carolina was removed on Wednesday as the program searches for a new head coach. Two workers began the process and were able to bring down the banner:

The banner coming down symbolizes the end of a successful era in South Carolina football and the beginning of a new one.

The banner first went up following the 2013 season, a year in which the Gamecocks enjoyed their third consecutive 11-2 season and finished with the highest ranking in school history at No. 4 in the polls. Spurrier took over the program prior to the 2005 season and never had a losing year until stepping down midseason at 2-4 this year.

Spurrier goes down as the best coach in South Carolina history. His three straight 11-2 seasons that culminated in top-10 rankings were the best years the Gamecocks ever enjoyed. Now the program will look to see if they can find a coach who can achieve his levels of success, not to mention deliver as many awesome quotes as he did.
