South Carolina Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier received a two-year contract extension, tying him to the university through 2015, the Cocks announced Tuesday. The HBC followed the first-ever SEC East title in program history with the first 10-win season in program history, setting up a chance for 11 in the Capital One Bowl.

Spurrier:

"I appreciate the administration agreeing that the head coach should have four years remaining on his contract to show the recruits and fans that he plans to be here," said Coach Spurrier. "Our football program is headed in the right direction. We've had some success and have had some good things happen here, but winning the SEC is one goal we have not yet reached. We hope and believe we can do that in the next four years."

This is the third extension Spurrier has received in Columbia. He's 89-54 since joining the Cocks in 2005. Dabo Swinney may tell you that he's impressed with any of this, if you'd like to ask him.
