DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -A familiar name from Duke's football past was on campus Wednesday: Steve Spurrier.
The South Carolina coach was at Cameron Indoor Stadium meeting with athletic director Joe Alleva, two days after the Blue Devils fired coach Ted Roof.
Observer of Raleigh reported that Spurrier was seen shaking hands with the AD as they left Duke's primary athletic facility at around 3:20 p.m.
A school spokesman told The Associated Press the two are old friends. Earlier this week, Alleva said he planned to consult with Spurrier during his search for a replacement for Roof, who went 6-45 in four-plus seasons leading the Blue Devils.
Spurrier was 20-13-1 from 1987-89 at Duke, leading the school to its most recent Atlantic Coast Conference title in 1989 before leaving for his alma mater, Florida. He often speaks of his fondness for Duke, voting the Blue Devils No. 25 on his preseason ballot in the coaches' Top 25 as a thank you for his first chance to become a head coach.
Alleva said he would like to hire someone with major college head coaching experience within a month to rebuild a Duke program that hasn't won an ACC game since 2004.
