Roy Williams was the assistant coach for Team USA at the 2004 Olympics and is one of the most respected and successful coaches in the industry.
"He's really a bright man," says Dean Smith. "He has the whole package of what you want as a college head coach. You want somebody who knows basketball, can judge talent, is a competent leader and can teach it in practice, makes good decisions in the game, is highly organized, and also is honest in recruiting.
"He's like Tiger Woods in golf - they have the whole package," Smith adds. "I don't know anyone else who does. I certainly consider him to be the best college coach in the country."
As a tough but fair person who is known for his leadership, honesty, integrity and tremendous work ethic, he is a model coach who is respected by all.
"There's nothing deceptive about him. He is what he is - a wonderful person and a great coach…His players play the right way. They're team-oriented." Legendary NBA executive and Hall of Famer Jerry West.
Coach Williams is available for a limited number of speaking engagements following the season.
