Roy Williams Believes He Belongs Solely As College Coach

Roy Williams has been speculated as a potential candidate for the Los Angeles Lakers' head coaching vacancy, but the UNC head coach did his best to squash the reports.

“I've always felt like that I'm a college coach and that's where I belong,” Williams said. “(Lakers general manager) Mitch Kupchak is one of my best friends in the whole wide world, there's no question there, but I'm a college guy and if somebody calls and offers me the greatest job in the world, it better be really good because I feel like I've got about the greatest job in the world.”

Williams declined to interview for the Lakers' job in 2004.
