Spurrier on player stipends: 'The money is there, and they bring it in'
Steve Spurrier opened up his reasoning for supporting player stipends or enhanced scholarships during One2One on CBS Sports Network.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has not been shy about his support for player stipends, enhanced scholarships, or other forms of compensation for football and men's basketball players. So when Tracy Wolfson asked him to touch on the topic during this week's edition of One2One, Spurrier was prepared to share some numbers on the spot.
Spurrier references his $75,000 salary at Duke University, along with the salaries of his assistants, and agreed that it was comparable to the compensation his players were receiving in the form of a scholarship. He suggested, as he has often before, that if everyone else is making more money, the player compensation should increase as well.
