Spurrier resigns, takes blame for South Carolina's slide

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Steve Spurrier says that he made the decision to resign as South Carolina's head coach because the team was heading in the wrong direction.

He told a news conference Tuesday: "We've slipped. It's my fault. I'm the head coach."

Spurrier was in the middle of his 11th season. The Gamecocks were 2-4 overall and 0-4 in the Southeastern Conference for the first time in Spurrier's career.
