Debbie Yow vs. Gary Williams: The new NC State AD used to work at Maryland, where she famously clashed with basketball coach Gary Williams. I heard late in the NC State search that Yow was the reason it was taking so long. She couldn’t steal an established name from another school, or nab an up-and-comer, so she settled for an old friend – buddies for 30 years – Mark Gottfried, who just missed out on the Utah opening, and had been working for ESPN. Then, she took a shot at Williams: “I have a reputation of not getting along with Gary Williams, who has tried to sabotage the search. Come on. We all know that, OK? So, whatever. It’s not a reputation. It’s Gary Williams out there doing his thing. Whatever.” Have fun, Gottfried.
