South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is known for purposely trying to troll his opponents during interviews. Wednesday, he unknowingly (we think, who knows) trolled the person interviewing him. Spurrier, speaking on ESPNU regarding his 2014 recruiting class, started off his conversation with analyst Dari Nowkhah by calling him “Darcy”. Nowkhah’s coworkers couldn’t contain themselves laughing in the background.
Nowkhah addressed the situation after he finished interviewing Louisville coach Bobby Petrino – he said it’s nowhere near the first time it’s happened with Spurrier. Which begs the question – was the SC coach’s mishap on purpose, to poke fun at past mispronunciations?
We may never know.
