GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Two days after berating running back Kelvin Taylor on the sideline, Florida coach Jim McElwain says, "I'm not proud about it and neither is my mother."

McElwain stopped short of apologizing for his profanity-laced tirade, during which he yelled at Taylor "look at me! Don't look down! (Expletive) be a man!"

On Monday, McElwain said he regretted how it played out.

Taylor, the son of retired NFL running back Jacksonville Jaguars star Fred Taylor, was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after making a throat-slash gesture following a touchdown in Saturday's 31-24 victory against East Carolina.

When Taylor got to the sideline, McElwain laid into him in front of teammates, coaches and about 90,000 fans.

McElwain says he got "an earful" from his 94-year-old mother.

The coach says he also needs to learn from his mistakes.
