AP Source: Spurrier retiring from South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has told his players that he is retiring, effective immediately.

The 70-year-old coach informed players of his decision Monday night, said a person close to the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because South Carolina hasn't publicly announced Spurrier's decision.

South Carolina hasn't named an interim coach, but likely would announce someone to finish out the season by Wednesday, the person said.
