Ezell was introduced Wednesday as the new head coach of the Lady Bucs. It’s the fourth move up the professional ladder for the 37-year-old Franklin native, who once was a two-sport college star at Alabama.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever been more nervous or excited to stand in front of such a great group of supporters and such a large group of media,” Ezell said from the podium at a crowded news conference in the Ward Room. “If I’ve learned anything in my career as a coach, as a player, it’s that you under-promise and over-deliver. So I’m not going to stand up in front of you and give you a lot of promises about what we’re going do or who we’re going to be.
“But I will tell you this: We will work tirelessly to restore this program to the championship level that Johnson City expects, that this great university expects.”
