UNC's Roy Williams Retires

Recommended Posts


Williams' retirement will leave a void in college basketball and it opens up arguably the best job in the country.


Will North Carolina replace Williams within his coaching tree? Candidates within his tree include Stanford’s Jerod Haase, UNC Greensboro’s Wes Miller and current Tar Heels assistants Hubert Davis and Steve Robinson.

If North Carolina looks outside of the Williams lineage, candidates could include Baylor’s Scott Drew to Oklahoma City’s Billy Donovan and even possibly Kentucky’s John Calipari.

I'd say they go outside the family, even though historically Carolina is very insular as far as hires go.



Not sure where I'd rank Williams all time, but he has to be Top 10 if not top 5. Too bad he never won a Natty at Kansas, then he'd REALLY be up there.

He was arguably better than Dean Smith, even though he'd never say so because he worships Smith.

Their all time win percentages are nearly identical (Smith 77.6, Williams 77.4).  Williams has more titles and more overall wins.  It's very close between the two.
