UNC announced on Wednesday that they agreed to a new 8-year deal with head coach Roy Williams. If the 68-year-old finishes the entire contract he’ll be 76 when it finishes up in 2027-28.

Williams was one of 11 head coaches at the school that received a new contract with the Tarheels.
Via Go Heels:
UNC has signed or is announcing:
• contracts and/or contract extensions with 11 head coaches, including Williams’ extension, which runs through 2027-28;
• personal service contracts for four head coaches with Nike;
• a 10-year extension for Carolina Athletics with Nike;
• and a 12-year extension for the department with Learfield Communications.
All of the contracts, and a licensing agreement and labor standards agreements with Nike, are available on GoHeels.com.
It doesn’t look like Williams is going anywhere anytime soon. It’s too bad the players can’t get their hands on some of that Nike money.
