Jon Gruden visits Steve Spurrier, South Carolina



Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden on Tuesday made a surprise visit to South Carolina's practice at Jefferson High School to wish the team well in the Outback Bowl, according to a story in the The Daily Iowan.

South Carolina will play Iowa at 11 a.m. Thursday at Raymond James Stadium.

"It was nice to see Coach Gruden come out here," South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier told the paper. "They had had a very tough ending as we all know. It was nice of him and his boys to come out here and sort of pull for the Gamecocks."

Spurrier was a colleague of Gruden's when he coached the Washington Redskins from 2002-03.
