On Roy Williams’s retirement and the best coaching jobs in the country

As you know by now, long-time North Carolina Tar Heels men’s basketball coach Roy Williams will be retiring at 70 years old. For a long time, Syracuse fans were most familiar with Roy from afar, and that time he lost to the Orangemen in the National Championship Game. But since we joined the ACC, we see Williams at least once per year — and sometimes more like when the Heels beat us in the Final Four, or we obliterate UNC in the ACC Tournament.

Now, even if it seems like Williams is retiring to be a message board crank, he’s still a Hall of Famer.
