Nutt Calls Spurrier Return "Exciting"
The report reached the Arkansas practice field by Thursday afternoon and Hogs coach Houston Nutt said Spurrier would be welcomed back to the Southeastern Conference if the decision is finalized.
"He's a great coach," Nutt said. "It'll be exciting with him back in the league."
South Carolina is Arkansas' permanent opponent from the SEC Eastern Division, meaning the Hogs would have to face Spurrier and his "fun and gun" offense every season.
Current Gamecocks' coach Lou Holtz is expected to retire at the end of the season and the report also said the official announcement would come next week.
Speculation has surrounded Spurrier, the former Florida Gators and Washington Redskins coach, for more than a month about various coaching vacancies.
Spurrier met with Florida officials about that job left open after the mid-season firing of Ron Zook, but pulled his name out of consideration shortly afterward. Spurrier guided the Gators to the national championship in 1996.
