Senator Burr Statement on the Retirement of Coach Roy Williams

Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement regarding UNC Men’s Basketball Coach Roy Williams’ announced retirement:

“When Roy Williams first stepped onto the court in Chapel Hill as a college freshman, I doubt anyone, even the great Dean Smith, could predict the Hall of Fame career he was about to start,” said Senator Burr. “After 48 seasons as a basketball coach - that included leading the Tar Heels to three national championships - Coach Williams can look back on his career knowing he leaves an enduring impact on UNC-Chapel Hill, the state of North Carolina, and the hundreds of young people he mentored over the years.”
