Steve Spurrier will live forever as the head coach of Florida's football program on the calf of a Gators' fan.
Richard Ward, a California-based Florida fan, got a pretty incredible Spurrier tattoo.

Ward, 32, a “born and raised die-hard fan” of Gators football, has neither been to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium nor seen Florida play. “That’s my dream,” he said.
That’s why Ward (@rich559 on Twitter) ultimately decided on the tattoo, which features Spurrier being held on the shoulders of two players — Kenyetta Walker and Gerard Warren — following UF’s 2000 SEC Championship Game victory. It is Ward’s second featuring Gators football and both are on his calves.
Spurrier, now retired, was Florida's head coach from 1990-2001. He led the Gators to a national championship in 1996.
