According to Dennis Dodd at CBS Sports, Spurrier will become immediately eligible and has a chance to enter the College Football Hall of Fame as soon as 2017. Spurrier, 70, is already in the College Football Hall of Fame as a player, an accolade he received in 1996 as a former Heisman Trophy winner.
As a College Head Coach, Steve Spurrier has a 228-89-2 Record, a National Championship in 1996 with the Florida Gators and is the winningest coach in Gamecocks history.
Should Spurrier enter the College Football Hall of Fame he would become the fourth person to enter as both a player and a coach.
Although we here at Norinhalloffame.com do not currently rank those who are not in the College Football Hall of Fame, this is a scenario we will be watching closely!
