Steve Spurrier

Legendary coach Steve Spurrier has written his memoir, “Head Ball Coach: My Life in Football.”  We discussed why he decided it was time to share his story, how important it was for him to be a different kind of football coach, and why he always fell back on the wisdom of John Wooden.  We also shared some USFL memories and Steve told a story about his best game as a pro QB, which of course came against the Bears at Soldier Field.
