TAMPA, FL (WIS) - Former University of South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia broke his silence Wednesday, exactly 3 months after being dismissed from the team after failing an alcohol test.
Garcia told Tampa-area television station Bright House Sports Network-Tampa that he was wrong to act the way he did while he was at USC.
"I would have listened more closely, more in detail to the higher-ups," said Garcia. "It wasn't anybody's fault, it was 100% my fault."
Garcia said his relationship with Coach Spurrier is "alright." "I talked to him the other day," said Garcia. "I sent him a text message to congratulate him on a successful year and his successful knee replacement...and he called me right back."
Garcia told Bright House Sports Network-Tampa that he and Spurrier talked about how the former Gamecock was doing, his girlfriend, his son and his upcoming all-star game.
Garcia was suspended 5 times by the university before ultimately being let go on October 11.
He finished his career as a Gamecock with 7,597 passing yards and a 57.7% completion rate, with 47 touchdowns and 41 interceptions. He became the third quarterback in school history to throw for more than 7,500 yards in a career, and also ranks third on the all-time charts in pass attempts, pass completions and passing touchdowns.
Garcia hopes to have a chance in the NFL. He told Bright House Sports Network-Tampa that he's currently getting back into shape by working out 3 times a day in a Tampa-area strength facility.
He'll take part in the Battle of Florida all-star football game on January 21.
