Former Florida Gators head coach Steve Spurrier has coached in one-seventh of the Southeastern Conference (Florida, South Carolina), defeated every team in the league and was even once interviewed by another program (LS
Appearing on The Paul Finebaum Show for a in-depth interview during his 71st birthday, Spurrier answered a number of interesting questions including what he believes are the best jobs in the league.
“What are the best two job sin the SEC? I think Georgia and LSU are basically the best two,” began the former Gators and Gamecocks coach. “Of course, Nick Saban has made Alabama the best right now. But as far as recruiting advantages, LSU doesn’t have much competition in their state, and Georgia pretty much should own their state there. ”
The reasoning definitely makes sense here, particularly for LSU, which always dominates top-tier recruiting in Louisiana. Regarding UGA, Spurrier later noted that other programs from outside the state of Georgia have success recruiting there (like UF, USC), but he still believes the Bulldogs are the dominant program in their state.
Earlier in the Finebaum conversation, Spurrier was asked whether he would have interest in returning to Florida in an undetermined role. Though he mentioned he was on campus recently to present an academic award and watch the Gators practice, Spurrier avoided saying much more.
“I really don’t know what I want to do. I really don’t. Something will come up,” he said, noting that he did not want to be completely, 100 percent retired.
