Roy Williams: ‘I love the position I’m in’


North Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams sat down with The David Glenn Show this week at the ACC’s Operation Basketball event in Charlotte. The 66-year-old gave an update on his health, talked about the depth of the ACC and shared his opinion on national anthem protests.

Williams also talked about the offseason improvement of one of his juniors.

“Justin Jackson is shooting it better,” Williams said. “Every time he shoots it, I think it’s going in. He’s made more in practice.”

The Tar Heel coach embraced the pressure last season as his team made a run to the national championship game. He also doesn’t think anyone should sleep on his 2016-17 group.

“Last year, I loved it,” he said. “This year, I love the position I’m in. I think you’ve got to look at it like that, too — that we do still have to prove some things.”
