The University of North Carolina announced on Jan. At around 9 a.m. Jayhawk time on April 11, Roy Williams announced retirement from training college basketball. There was a press conference later that afternoon where Roy looked back over a dozen times on his time in Kansas If you want to watch the replay, this tweet has several options

Roy is from North Carolina He attended UNC and began coaching at the high school level After serving as an assistant under Dean Smith in 1978-88, he was hired in Kansas after Larry Brown joined the NBA
Shortly after he was hired at the KU, the Jayhawks were placed on probation for violating previous employees, so that they were no longer admitted to the NCAA tournament despite a record of 19-12 and six weeks in the 1988-89 season were top 25 mid-season

In its sophomore year, the Jayhawks set a team record for points they scored when they defeated Kentucky 150-95 at Allen Fieldhouse. Williams led the KU to 14 consecutive NCAA tournaments that enabled a still-active NCAA A record streak of 31 consecutive seasons began Roy would eventually take the Jayhawks to four Final Fours: 1991, 1993, 2002 and 2003

The only blow to Roy from the KU perspective could be what he failed to achieve in Lawrence, namely leaving town with no national championships, plus some early tournament exits KU took five times as a 1-seed under Roy ( 1992, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2002) participated in the NCAA tournament and made the Final Four only once as top seed.The 1997 Jayhawks fell into the Sweet 16 to 4-Seed Arizona in conversation as one of the greatest college basketball teams of all time

Roy’s Jayhawks 2001-02 are still the only Big 12 team to roll through the conference unbeaten 16-0 Years between 418 and 101

Roy was 35-4 against K-State in Lawrence and didn’t lose to the Wildcats after the 1993/94 season. He was also 19-13 against Missouri, but interestingly only 4-3 against the Tigers as AP # 1 team His favorite opponent (except KSU) was probably Colorado, against whom he had a 33-2 advantage

The Jayhawks were the most successful D1 program of the 90s. Roy gave us Raef and Scot, Nick and Kirk, 150-95, 62-straight (home wins), 16-0, “I’m not giving a $ h! T over North Carolina “and finally after leaving KU he rather involuntarily gave us 40-12,” It’s over! ” and the now infamous Jayhawk sticker:

Roy Williams ends his career with 903 career wins, currently the third all-time in Division 1 He is the first (and so far only) coach to win 400 games at two universities He turned Kansas around after the probationary period that the Outcome of the Larry Brown era at a time when things could have quickly gone south for the KU program, and it also immediately stabilized a North Carolina program that faltered after three years under Matt Doherty

Williams is one of eight coaches in all of Kansas basketball history, and I don’t think it’s wrong to say that the KU has retained its blue blood status in college basketball, not least Thanks to Roy’s efforts he was here
