RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State athletic director Debbie Yow says Maryland coach Gary Williams attempted to "sabotage" the Wolfpack's search for a new men's basketball coach.

Yow, the former Maryland athletic director, responded to a reporter's question Tuesday to newly hired coach Mark Gottfried about whether she had a reputation as being difficult to work with. She says she had a "reputation of not getting along with Gary Williams, who has tried to sabotage the search. Come on, we all know that."

Doug Dull, a team spokesman at Maryland, did not immediately return a call or e-mail from the Associated Press for comment. Williams released a statement to the Baltimore Sun saying he hasn't talked to anyone connected to the N.C. State search and that anyone who says he did "isn't being truthful."
