The name's Bond...James Bond.
More on Spurrier, this time from Len Pasquarelli's weekly Tip Sheet (espn.com):
I'm not sure who the unnamed owner is, and Pastabelly gives no hints, but given all the speculation about the Phins and Spurrier, HWH has to be a likely possibility.
One high-ranking football-type official at the league meetings, a guy whose team might make a coaching change after this season, said he is "under orders" from his owner to monitor the courtship of Steve Spurrier by the University of Florida. "Regardless of what happened (with the Washington Redskins), our owner is still kind of smitten by the guy," said the team official. "It doesn't matter what I think because, believe me, I've been told in no uncertain terms to keep tabs on the Florida situation. I guess that means, if we made a change, our owner would have Spurrier on his short list. I've got my own concerns, but he's the boss." Word is that Florida has given Spurrier two weeks to decide if he wants his old Gators job back. And there are rumblings that former Green Bay assistant Bo Pelini, who was interim coach at Nebraska for a short time last season and currently is the co-defensive coordinator at Oklahoma, would be the man Spurrier sought out to run his defense for him.
