The ole' ball coach says he was floored when he heard Urban Meyer had resigned.
But when Meyer decided to take a leave of absence, Steve Spurrier says he breathed a sigh of relief.
Spurrier spoke Monday as the Gamecocks resumed preparations for this week's Papajohns.com Bowl against Connecticut.Spurrier coached Florida to a national title in 1996, and understands the pressure of maintaining a championship program.Steve Addazio has worked with Urban Meyer for seven seasons, including the last five at Florida. He knows how Meyer thinks, what he wants and can usually predict how he will react to any situation. Addazio basically knows Meyer's coaching style as well as his own. Addazio also has a goal for his tenure as interim coach: Continuity. Addazio will take over for Meyer next week, filling in while Meyer takes an indefinite leave of absence.
