Thread: Roy Williams retiring?

  1. #321
    I really hope it's Hubert -- he might succeed, but he has a much lower chance of being good than, you know, a coach who has proven to be good

    If they keep it "in the family" again, it will pretty much be a statement that the rest of the BB world isn't ready for the level of slime that perpetrates from the Old Well.

    pretty good take from the NY Post

    " itís all a con. The retirement of North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams last week inspired a salute from his longtime Duke rival, Mike Krzyzewski ó who celebrated Williams as a man who not only cared about the game, ďbut more importantly, the people who played it.Ē

    So then why did Williams plead total ignorance when it came to light that his UNC career and successes were in part predicated on systemic academic fraud in maintaining player eligibility through high marks in no-show, no-work classes?

    How is it possible he cared most ďabout the peopleĒ who played for him when he didnít know or perhaps even care if his recruits would leave UNC with a functional education, starting with the ability to read and write?

    How did his star guard Rashad McCants make the academic Deanís List ó four Aís in his four classes ó when, by his own admission, he didnít attend a single class? Or was that for perfect attendance at practice?

    As the collegeís highest paid employee, didnít that matter to Williams or UNC?

    Save it, Coach K. Youíre full of it, and I suspect you know it."

    Sounds like Hubert Davis.

    Wonder if Roy retired this year because it made the hiring of Davis somewhat certain, versus other years when a bigger, non-UNC name might be more interested.

    Sounds like it will be Hubert Davis. I think UNC's arrogance will finally get the best of them.

    Would assume this means Aidoo to UNC, as well.

    awesome

    he might be good, but much less likely than many other guys they could have had

    If it is Davis, I'm gonna feel a bit worse about it if he brings Miller on. That would make more sense from a bench perspective with a clear succession plan in place.

    Wow, what a wasted opportunity.

    Goodman also tweeted that Cunningham "swung for the fence" but that none of UNC's aspirational candidates were interested. Not terribly surprising.

    Why would Miller take a job as an assistant ? If Davis succeeds he'll be an assistant forever. If Davis fails, he wouldn't be the guy to replace him.

    I think it's safe to assume Stevens is never coming back to the college ranks unless he has no choice or he really just wants to end up at Duke when K retires. That's the only other job I could see him holding out for if he does ever want to return to college basketball.

    Didn't Miller get his current HC gig by being promoted from assistant coach on an interim basis but then earned the job? Or am I misremembering?
