Despite Steve Spurrier's denials today in his weekly teleconference, sources tell CSTV that he is still heading to the University of Miami to replace Larry Coker as head football coach. CSTV first reported the story last night on Gametracker Live and SEC Football Nation.


In his media teleconference this afternoon at 2:00 pm, Spurrier was repeatedly asked about the Miami job, and denied that he was a candidate.  However, following multiple questions asking him if he is in interested in the Miami job, the coach never insisted he wasn't interested, but instead, tip-toed around the answer.  I asked him to state that he is not interested in Miami and again, the coach failed to state that he is not interested.  Spurrier also jokingly said that he hopes to be back at South Carolina next year, but that depends on the school's athletic director and president.


Despite Spurrier's denials, CSTV stands by its initial reporting and has, in fact, confirmed from yet an additional source very close to the situation that Spurrier to Miami is still likely to happen.


Spurrier is finishing up his 2nd season in Columbia, and owns a 13-10 record at USC.
