In how many ways can you spell the word COOL in the grid below? You can start on any letter, then on each step, you can step one letter in any direction (up, down, left, right, or diagonal).

$$\begin{array}{ccccc} C&C&C&C&C\\ L&O&O&O&L\\ L&O&O&O&L\\ L&O&O&O&L\\ C&C&C&C&C\\ \end{array}$$

4 was incorrect... Do you have any other answers?

I counted 64 ways, that was wrong too.
