Spurrier says Tennessee not in his future

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier says there was a time not so long ago that he would have jumped at the Tennessee job.

Spurrier said Monday night that time has passed.

Spurrier grew up in Johnson City, Tenn., and pulled for the Vols. Four or five years ago, Spurrier says he would have considered coaching Tennessee as he looked to get back into college football after his bad NFL experience with the Washington Redskins.

These days, Spurrier says South Carolina is his last job. He expects the Gamecocks to keep improving as he tries to challenge for the Southeastern Conference title.
