UNC's Williams pushes back on TV speculation he might retire

Feb 20, 2016 - 10:51 PM CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina coach Roy Williams had a response Saturday to speculation he might retire: ''You have no frickin' idea what you're talking about.''

Williams was leaving his news conference after the fifth-ranked Tar Heels beat No. 11 Miami 96-71 when he returned and referenced a comment from CBS college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb on a pregame show ''that I was going to retire and (assistant) Hubert (Davis) was going to replace me.''

Williams went on to jab the ex-Oklahoma State player for wearing shorts backward at Kansas years ago. He says he likes Gottlieb but says speculation is ''not journalism'' and added: ''Don't make up crap.''

Gottlieb later tweeted there was no news to ''report,'' only talk of health and lingering NCAA issues that ''make people think this could be his last year.''

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
