Why Roy Williams Is The Perfect Coach For North Carolina
This was such a great post about Roy Williams by Crow at that I had to share it:
Roy Williams was an even better choice than UNC might have imagined when they named him as their head coach. Sure, he’s a fantastic recruiter, a solid bench coach, he gets along extremely well with his players and instills in them a “team first” attitude that produces both impressive win totals and players that you can be proud of. Being the defending National Champions doesn’t hurt either.
But I think UNC lucked into one thing they probably didn’t realize at the time they hired Roy Williams. The unrealized bonus can be found if you pull back and look at the big picture. The big ACC picture, that is. UNC lucked out because Roy Williams is the perfect foil to Duke's Mike Krzyzewski. Hollywood could not have cast a finer archetype to contrast against Duke’s perpetually scowling coach. (Cats Pause)
