South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier plans to retire, a source confirmed to FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman on Monday.

Sports Illustrated was the first to report Spurrier's plans, but no timetable was given. Gamecock Central, Rivals.com's South Carolina site, reported that he informed the team Monday.

FOX Sports college football insider Bruce Feldman later confirmed the news of Spurrier's retirement through a source.

Who's next? For now, it appears to be assistant coach Shawn Elliott. He'll be naed interim head coach on Tuesday, according to FOX Sports NFL insider Alex Marvez.

It hasn't been the best season for Spurrier, 70, and his Gamecocks. South Carolina is just 2-4 overall and 0-4 in the SEC, its worst-ever start in the Spurrier area.

Spurrier is 86-49 at South Carolina with five bowl wins, including each of the last four seasons. Overall, he's 228-89-2 in 26 college seasons -- the first three at Duke and the middle 12 at Florida, where he won the national championship in 1996.
