Roy Williams

1950

One of the best coaches in college basketball today and possibly ever, Roy Williams was from humble beginnnings. Raised in Asheville, North Carolina, Williams was raised by his mother after his father left them. In Asheville, Williams was on the high school basketball team at T.C. Robertson High School where he was recruited to play at North Carolina by Dean Smith. Although he only played one year of Junior Varsity at North Carolina, Williams stayed to receive his Bachelor's Degree in 1972. The next year, Williams got his M.A.T. from North Carolina and began his coaching career. His coaching career began when he was the coach of the boy's basketball, 9th grade and golf teams at Charles D. Owen Swannanoa High School in North Carolina for five years and served as the athletic director his last two years there. Before the start of the 1978-1979 season, Dean Smith called on Roy to join the coaching staff at North Carolina. During that tenure, the Tar Heels played for two national champions
