Just twenty minutes before tee time this morning, Steve Spurrier was kind enough to give a quick interview with the guys over at 790 The Zone in Atlanta.

From the get go, Spurrier made it clear he was thrilled to be doing the interview.

“So coach, how are you doing today?”

Spurrier responded, “Oh, we’re getting ready to go play here in about 20 minutes. Sterling (Sharpe) is about to carry my butt around this thing.”

Translation…glad to be with you, but let’s get this thing over as fast as possible.

Asked about Stephen Garcia, Spurrier said, “We’ll, I’ve learned not to get too mad at him. As you’ve probably noticed the last year or so, I don’t throw any temper tantrums on the sidelines, try not to. Stephen could still be back, he’s got some things to do. We’ll make a statement in about a month or so.”

Spurrier was pressed about why he hasn’t just said “That’s it, I don’t need this in my life anymore.”

He responded, “Well, he hasn’t been arrested lately and he hasn’t done anything too stupidly. But he still has some immature acts that cause some problems around school. But we’re not giving up on him. We don’t just want to cast him aside, so we’ll see if he makes some attitude adjustments to get back.”
