VIDEO: A Tribute To Gary Williams' Maryland Basketball Tenure


↵

This was the tribute video that was played at Gary Williams' press conference in which he announced his retirement from Maryland basketball. It played right before he came to the podium, and you could see Williams constantly looking down, probably because he knew he would cry if he looked up at it.

The video takes you through Williams' entire Maryland tenure, starting with his playing days, then to his early coaching days, the 2002 national championship, his 500th career win, his 600th career win, the 2004 ACC Tournament championship, his most recent teams and much, much more. If you care about Maryland basketball, it's tough not to get emotional about this video.

Really, could you think of any better song to put in a tribute video than Bob Seger's "Like A Rock?" I know, I know: it's the song people remember from the Chevorlet commercials. But it kind of fits perfectly here, doesn't it?
