Williams said several friends in New Orleans helped him cope with the tragedy. ''You meet so many people when you're a head coach in a town like this, whether it's in the organization, the players, Covenant House, New Orleans Mission, going down to the bayou on an off day and catching redfish and just hanging with the Cajuns down there,'' Williams said. ''More than anybody, pastor Bill Gebhardt of Fellowship Bible Church in Metairie - he's like my dad. If I hadn't met pastor Bill when I came here, I probably wouldn't be here today.'' .
