Finding a new home in Kansas, where he established himself as a great leader of college basketball teams before his home away from home — Chapel Hill — called him back not once but twice before he agreed to return. And what a homecoming – the continuation of a HOF career highlighted by his first two national championships as coach of North Carolina.
At age 64, Williams has been called home again, to be recognized and honored for a lifetime of success and achievement in the game he loved so much he would sneak as a kid.
“Western North Carolina is my home,” said Williams. “It always has been and always will be… I am thrilled to be inducted into the Western North Carolina Hall of Fame and I hope all the people there who molded me as a youngster are proud as well.”
