Well, you can’t blame Shawn Elliott for trying.

Elliott, the former offensive line and interim head coach of South Carolina, was introduced as Georgia State’s new head football coach on Friday. It appears Elliott — albeit jokingly — had some big plans for his coaching staff, as he apparently asked Steve Spurrier to be his offensive coordinator.

Spurrier’s alleged response? It’s a great one.

Elliott was promoted to South Carolina’s interim head coach last year after Spurrier retired. If anything, Spurrier does owe Elliott a favor, and it’s possible that Spurrier ends up helping out at Georgia State in some minor fashion.
