Steve Spurrier still has the itch to coach.
And we could see the Head Ball Coach on the sidelines soon.
Spurrier had been in discussions with the new Alliance of American Football, a spring league that will begin in February of 2019.
“It is intriguing,” Spurrier said Wednesday. “I’ve had some conversations with those guys, especially if they have a team in Orlando, which I think they will.
“If Orlando has a team, I think (Tim) Tebow is a guy they’d like to be over there. But there is nothing in stone.”
The new league would likely have a territorial draft like the old USFL did. Spurrier coached the Tampa Bay Bandits in that league.
“It’s like a four or five-month job,” he said. “No recruiting. All this league is about is coaching. They want to make the games shorter, like 2½ hours.
“There are tons of players around and I think people would watch a spring league. But it’s still just talk right now.”
Spurrier said he didn’t think he would have to relinquish his role as an ambassador and consultant at Florida.
“Maybe a leave of absence,” he said.
