Steve Spurrier: No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem

Steve Spurrier knows a thing or two about winning as well as finding his way into the spotlight.

This offseason seems to be one of which is carefree. Spurrier has been spotted shirtless off the field this season on a boat, he went to Arby’s with All-American defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney dressed like a boss and now he’s coaching practice without a shirt, shoes or care in the world.

Check out the picture taken by South Carolina Gamecocks running back Kendric Salley.

The head ball coach, as his players refer to him as, was seen with his patented visor and white short — with nothing else on. Sure, the South Carolina sun has to get hot this time of year, but if your players have to suit up and practice in this weather, you should, too.

Spurrier has had quite the offseason answering questions about Clowney possibly sitting out the 2013 season, preparing to contend in the SEC and just hanging out shirtless like his retirement days will surely look to be.

While the Gamecocks look to be in pretty solid position to become one of the best teams in the nation in 2013, Spurrier might have to coach with his shirt on to spare the children and families attending games this fall.

Great coaches have the right to whatever they please and, technically, he is a great coach and it was his practice to do what he wanted. I’m sure his players got a kick out of his beer belly and careless attitude, but for now, put a shirt on Spurrier. Please.
