New Orlando football team will welcome Steve Spurrier on Tuesday night

Steve Spurrier will make one of his first appearances in his new role with the Alliance of American Football tomorrow in Orlando.

The league will welcome Spurrier as the coach of its Orlando team at an event at Ember (42 W Central Blvd.) at an event from 5-7 p.m. The event is open to the public.

Tickets for the inaugural season (set to begin in February) will go on sale an hour earlier at aaf.com.

The new league will mark Spurrier's return to coaching. The Florida Gators legend stepped down from South Carolina midway through the 2015 season.

He compiled a 228-89 record in college with stops at Duke, UF and South Carolina and led the Gators to the 1996 national title. Spurrier also coached professionally with the Tampa Bay Bandits and the Washington Redskins.

Spurrier has been serving as a brand ambassador for UF.
