GAINESVILLE — Steve Spurrier sat in his new office at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The office still has its old name plate — "Historical Library" — next to the door. The room once held overflow media guides and photographs. Now it contains the greatest Gator of them all."I'm enjoying this," Spurrier said.Spurrier, 71, has returned to Gainesville as a Gators consultant and ambassador. He is back at Florida, the school where 50 years ago he won a Heisman Trophy, the same year he married his wife, Jerri. He is back at the place where he changed the SEC forever with audacious football and nicknamed the home ballfield "The Swamp," then backed it up, and where 20 years ago he delivered Florida's first national championship.He is back at the stadium that tonight will officially be renamed Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium before the Gators' season opener against UMass.It will be emotional."I think this is the nicest, biggest, most amazing honor I've ever received," Spurrier said.And he means it.I don't know how coach Jim McElwain and the Gators will do this year.But this already feels like the Gators are 1-0.The Spur Dog is back.He is taking up new duties. He will help with fundraising and speaking to Gator Clubs. Last week, he was on a call-in radio show with outgoing Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley. He also is doing some travel to promote his new book, Head Ball Coach: My Life in Football , written with Buddy Martin. He was in New York recently. Spurrier appeared on Fox & Friends, where an on-screen graphic identified him as the "Head Game Coach."Sinful.He watches film in his office. Sometimes he joins Florida offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier and they'll watch together. But understand something, you orange-and-blue palace coup dreamers out there."No, I'm not coaching anything," Spurrier said. "Like I said, I watch practice a little bit. Coach Nuss or Coach Mac might ask a question. What do you think about this or that? I'll give my opinion. Simple as that. Coach Mac, he's not a big ego guy. He's one of the reasons I'm here."Here's another reason:"I think I'm more of a person who'd like to be on a team," Spurrier said in July when it was announced he was returning. "I've been on a team since I was 7 years old."Spurrier talked about The Swamp. He gave the stadium its now iconic nickname between his second and third seasons, with the help and research of Norm Carlson, his friend and longtime Florida communications director. They tossed around ideas, including lousy ones. "Gator Bog" was discussed. But Spurrier settled on "The Swamp."A stroke of murky, marshy genius."I think (Bill Arnsparger) was still here," Spurrier said. "We had a guy, Bill McBride, he was our marketing wiz. I think Arnsparger asked McBride what he thought about the new name. He said that was a terrible idea. That's not going to stick. So, anyway, he was gone after a year or two."Florida was a remarkable 68-5 at home in the 12 seasons of the Head Swamp Thing."Two FSUs, an Alabama, an Auburn and a Tennessee," Spurrier said. "All pretty close games. We won a few close ones here, but usually we beat them by three or four touchdowns. Clobbered a lot of teams. Our guys loved playing at the Swamp. That '96 season, we scored 50 points every game at The Swamp. The lowest was 51 against Auburn. Nobody ever talks about that, but that'll never be broken. But I remember it."Who needs a historical library?Steve Spurrier is back where he belongs.Tonight, his name will be where it belongs, too.On the stadium.
