Steve Spurrier hasn’t coached in college football since 2015, but he continues to make headlines.
The Head Ball coach loves to troll his rivals and does so whenever he gets the chance. This time, the former Florida Gators head coach took aim at Florida State.
The Seminoles faltered again this weekend, losing to Virginia in an All-ACC clash. After the game, Spurrier was approached by a fan who said her dad is a Seminoles fan.
Spurrier used that as an opportunity to troll Florida State.
“Tell your dad [Willie] Taggart is a great coach and Florida State should offer him a 10 year extension,” Spurrier allegedly said.
Just told SOS my dad is an FSU fan. And while I anticipated getting slapped upside the head with the paper he had rolled in his hand, instead he said:

Taggart is just 6-9 since taking over as the Seminoles head coach in 2018.
The former Oregon Ducks head coach has struggled to lead Florida State to victory despite a massive contract from the school. Florida State suffered its first losing season since 1976 in Taggart’s first year as the head coach.
The team was also not invited to a bowl for the first time since the end of the 1981 season.
Florida State sits at 1-2 on the season with the team’s only win coming against Louisiana-Monroe. Next up for the Seminoles is another ACC clash against Louisville on Saturday afternoon.
