Similar Paths Bring Davis, Spurrier to Carolinas

Butch Davis and Steve Spurrier have more in common than they'd probably care to admit - right down to the visors that top their wardrobes. Back in the 1990s, both coaches took over probation-saddled programs in Florida and led them back to national prominence before leaving for brief, unsuccessful flings in the NFL. After some time away, they returned to the college game and took over at schools who compete in the same conferences as their former teams. (WRAL.com)
