When he was back up qb with 49ers, the starter, John Brodie got hurt. Spurrier was excellent in the 8 or 9 games he started and led the team to the playoffs. The nit wit head coach, Dick Nolen then started Brodie in playoff game and the 49ers lost. He let the "hot hand" sit on the bench. When he got to the Bucs in 76, he had John McKay as head coach, but no OL. If you think the UF 2020 OL was bad you should have watched the 76 Bucs. They could not pass or run block. Spurs would take the snap, drop back and be sacked before he hit his pass spot of 5 or 7 yards. Spurrier thought that with an awful OL the offense should quick pass, as in not drop back so deep. He would have been throwing much sooner and running less on first down. When he mentioned it to an asst coach, after the season of 0-14, the asst told McKay who promptly waived SOS.
