Maryland's Gary Williams Brought Passion To Terps

Over his 33-year coaching career, Williams won 668 games and brought a national championship home to College Park in 2002.

Williams is a Maryland graduate, and Washington Post sports writer Liz Clarke says it will be difficult to replace his feisty spirit.

"Even before the ball was tipped off, one of the most exciting things about seeing a game at Comcast was Gary marching out and raising that right fist of defiance," she says. "It'll be hard to find someone whose heart beats with that passion who's not an alum."

Williams had coached the Terrapins for 22 years. He will stay on at the University as a special assistant to the athletic director.
