COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- The internet world for the past 20 hours has dubbed the next head football coach at Coastal Carolina to be Gamecock wide receivers coach, Steve Spurrier, Jr.

ABC Columbia Sports talked with Coastal Carolina Sports Information Director Mike Cawood on Saturday and Sunday. Cawood says there are no plans to introduce a new head coach in the near future and the coaching search is ongoing.

ABC Columbia Sports left a voicemail with Coastal Carolina Athletic Directo Hunter Yurachek late Saturday night, and called again on Sunday, but those calls were not returned.

Spurrier, Jr. is said to be on Coastal Carolina's short-list of coaching candidates. Spurrier, Jr. is also the Gamecocks recruiting coordinator and still working for the Gamecock football team.
