COLUMBIA, S.C. — A person close to the situation says South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has told his players that he is retiring, effective immediately.

The person says the 70-year-old coach told his players Monday night. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because South Carolina has not publicly announced Spurrier’s decision.
