SEC FOOTBALL: Spurrier gets 2-year extension at South Carolina

(Continued)

COLUMBIA, S.C. —

He explained to the crowd how his team had a difficult game with "that school from the Upstate."

"As all of you know, it was a very close game," Spurrier continued with a grin. "Went into the fourth quarter, our defense played very well, our kicker made his kicks and we were able to beat Wofford, 24-7."

Incentives in Spurrier's contract also remain the same as in the contract approved last February. In that deal, the school agreed to add the Outback Bowl to the list of other top-tier postseason games where Spurrier would earn $100,000 bonus for playing there.

Spurrier has already earned bonuses totaling $150,000 for 10 victories. He can get an additional $200,000 for an 11th win.

Tanner said Spurrier has elevated the football program in every way and "is well deserving of this contract extension."
