Steve Spurrier will be given a contract extension this afternoon during a conference call of South Carolinas board of trustees, sources told The State this morning.
Spurrier, who became the schools all-time winningest coach when he posted his 65th win as a Gamecock against Clemson, is expected to receive a two-year extension and no raise. The new deal would extend his contract through 2017. It currently is set to expire in 2015, and the timing of todays extension is designed to help the Gamecocks on the recruiting trail, a source said.
Spurrier and his staff still could receive raises during the boards February meeting, a source said. Spurrier is set to make $2.95 million next year.
The No. 11 Gamecocks (10-2) will play No. 19 Michigan (8-4) on Jan. 1 in the Outback Bowl.
