Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams ’72 has received a contract extension through the 2019-20 season that includes pay raises.
Williams will begin his 13th year at UNC in the fall, his 28th as a collegiate coach. His teams have an overall record of 750-202, and he is one of 15 coaches in history to have teams win 750 games. Among active coaches with 20 or more years of experience, Williams’ teams’ winning percentage of .788 is the highest, and it is the sixth-best of all time. The teams he has coached have won 27.8 games per season; that is more than any other coach with teams of 750 or more wins.

Williams’ new contract includes a base salary ranging from $408,169 next year to $595,409 in 2019-20, deferred compensation ranging from $1,550,000 next year to $1,750,000 in 2019-20 and an annual expense account of $40,000.
