“I’ve said I want to coach another six to 10 years, so this contract takes me right to the edge of that, which is good,” says Williams. “I appreciate the confidence Chancellor Folt and Bubba Cunningham have in my leadership of the basketball program. They’ve demonstrated that with this contract extension, and with their support over the past several years, which have been a challenge for all who love Carolina as I do. I thank them on behalf of our basketball program and me personally.”
Williams’ new contract includes a base salary ranging from $408,169 next year to $595,409 in 2019-20, deferred compensation ranging from $1,550,000 next year to $1,750,000 in 2019-20 and an annual expense account of $40,000.
