"Emotionally, his sophomore year and last year prior to the dismissal, every time he met some minor adversity, a bad call or a missed shot, his emotions were so obvious," longtime TV analyst and former Maryland star Len Elmore told The Baltimore Sun. "He really got upset about a lot of things and when he got taken out of a game, he would go sit on the bench and pout."
"We found a number of qualified and, quite frankly, superior candidates," Elmore said of the six-man committee. "Gary Williams is an excellent coach but not much better than some of the others, if at all. But Gary Williams is the coach, and I will back him 100 percent."
