With a head coaching record of 668–380 (.637 win percentage), 2X NCAA coach of the year, and an NCAA Championship in 2002 as the head coach of the Maryland Terrapins, Gary Williams was just inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame. Gary calls in to discuss the future of UMD Basketball.
Gary starts off by saying that he never dwells on his career in regards to if he was good enough or not to make it into the hall of fame. He says hes just honored to be apart of the names in the Hall of fame and that it hasn’t fully sunk in yet for him.
Ed asks what it was like when Gary started and he had to rebuild the team. Gary says that he started in 1989 and it was great since then. Maryland was banned from postseason play in 1991 and 1992, and was kicked off live television for 1990-91 and the team struggled but with the help of Walt Williams, Maryland stayed competitive through a low point of the program’s history.
