Cadillac Williams receives ice bucket, shares emotional reaction to first win at Auburn
Cadillac Williams received an ice bucket after Auburn knocked off Texas A&M 13-10 for the interim coach’s first victory in this current position with the Tigers.
During an emotional post-game interview with Cole Cubelic on the SEC Network, Williams reacted to the win.
“All glory to God, God is good,” Williams said. “I’m so appreciative to the Auburn family. These fans, they showed up and showed out, man. The energy, the atmosphere here. I’m just so appreciative for this institution, this family indebted to it. I love serving these young men, the coaching staff. It’s bigger than me, it’s just not my show man, we are together, we’re family. I’m excited, 1-1.”
Williams said the key was to serve, have discipline and believe in the kids and the staff.
“These kids just need a little love, just need to be loved on,” he said. “With the discipline. They need to know it’s OK to make mistakes. They’re going to fall, but the coaches are going to be there to pick them back up. And regardless, we got their back, and they have to open their heart, and that’s all they did to be honest with you.”
Williams then turned his attention to the next opponent, Western Kentucky, before the Iron Bowl.
“We enjoy the journey together,” Williams said. “We’re writing the history and what we want the 2022 season to be like, man. We’re going finish, we’re going to do what we do.”
Turning to former teammates and Auburn players, Williams said, “Auburn football’s going to be OK. It ain’t dead, it ain’t dead. We coming. I’m just so appreciated, all glory go to God.”
