South Carolina Football Coach Steve Spurrier Pulls His TV Program, Slurred Words (Video)
South Carolina Gamecocks football coach Steve Spurrier appears each week on a TV show to go over the most recent ballgame with a co-host.
But Spurrier seemed under the weather when he reviewed the Gamecocks' recent win over the University of Central Florida (UCF) on the "Steve Spurrier Show" (video below).
The coach seemed to be slurring his words, which caused some fans to suggest he was drunk, notes Deadspin.com.
The "Steve Spurrier Show" is usually available on South Carolina's athletic department website, but this episode was taken down. The program is usually rerun by Fox Sport South, but this broadcast was replaced with a show from two weeks ago.
Spurrier said today the show was pulled because he was 'too negative," reports GoGameCocks.com (video below).
"We don't pull a TV show too often, but I way too negative. Afterwards, I said, 'I don't need to be so negative toward some of our players or some of our coaches that coach secondary, including myself. I try to always include myself in not coaching very well," said Spurrier.
When Coach Spurrier was asked if he had been drinking after the game against UCF, he said, “Whether or not I have a few beers after every game for the past 29 years I don’t think I need to get into all that. Most coaches that I know we probably do have a few beers after ballgames after building up all week and so forth. But that was a draining day and I got too negative. I don’t like being that negative after a victory.”
