Gregg Doyel declines D.C. interview requests

Remember Tuesday, when columnist Gregg Doyel had this to say about Gary Williams ducking his interview request:

“I want to make this very clear, that if Gary Williams does not return my call, he’s scared of me. And so he can act all big and bad, and he can stand there on his coaching bench and turn around and yell at his assistant coaches, who’ve done nothing wrong. And when a guy on the court travels, he can turn around and yell at the 12th man on his bench, because he’s a little bitty tiny coward runt of a man. He can do all that.

“But here I am on your radio show, and in an e-mail to his PR guy three times, begging him to talk to me about what he’s been saying behind Debbie Yow’s back and hurting the N.C. State head coaching search. And if he doesn’t call me back, then all that means to me is he’s a little bitty tiny coward of a man.”

Well, apparently this made Doyel a popular topic for the D.C. media on Wednesday. And so I’ve been told that both local sports-talk radio stations requested interviews with Doyel, one at least twice, and that Comcast SportsNet also requested an interview. And I’m told that Doyel declined all the requests. Not sure what to make of that.

(Full disclosure: I’ve had several enjoyable conversations with Doyel, and once took a photo of his mohawk.)
