Roy Williams blasts Doug Gottlieb after retirement speculation

Roy Williams

Roy Williams let Doug Gottlieb have it during his postgame press conference on Saturday after the CBS analyst claimed that the Tar Heels coach would retire at season’s end.

According to Ryan Phillips of the Big Lead, Gottlieb claimed on the CBS Sports pregame show that Williams may step down at season’s end, paving the way for Hubert Davis as a likely successor. Gottlieb attempted to clarify that this was not a report, but something that would make sense given the health issues Williams has faced.

Well, Coach Williams caught wind of this and he devoted part of his postgame press conference to putting Gottlieb on blast.

Yes, the “pants on backwards” thing is a reference to something.

Gottlieb issued a response on Twitter:

It sounds like Gottlieb was pretty unclear on whether he was reporting or speculating, at least initially, and a possible Roy Williams retirement is a pretty big thing to speculate or report. Somewhere, things got muddled and let to this. Doug has had a pretty rough week on the punditry front, so perhaps he’d better lay low for a bit.
