"I sort of liked an offseason. There is no offseason now," Spurrier told ESPN. "It's year around, and guys go, go, go, but a lot of guys like that. They don't go to the beach. They don't play golf. They don't travel. They don't do other things in life. I think it helped me last 30 years as a head coach because I did have an offseason."
