Earlier: South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is retiring, per Sports Illustrated's Thayer Evans.

It's unclear if Spurrier is retiring immediately or at the end of the season, though the latter is most likely the case. Spurrier's Gamecocks are currently 2-4.

If Evans' report is true, it is college football's loss. Spurrier is one of the most entertaining figures in the sport, and he'll be missed.
