and 2 more titles than the current UNC coach on a non-lifetime contract
Can't forget all time NCAA Div 1 wins record and the NCAA tournament record for # of wins.
Fastest to 600 wins of all time: Roy Williams
Best winning percentage between the two: Roy Williams and Roy is #1 among active coaches. Here is a little more about Roy which does not include this last 30 win season or elite 8 appearance:
"A member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and College Basketball Hall of Fame, Williams has led Carolina to national championships in 2005 and 2009, another Final Four in 2008, additional Elite Eights in 2007 and 2011, four NCAA Tournament No. 1 seeds, six Associated Press Top 10 final rankings, five ACC regular-season titles, two ACC Tournament crowns, four 30-win seasons and developed nine first-round NBA draft picks.
ESPN, Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News and Fox Sports named him the Coach of the Decade for 2000-2009. Williams led Kansas and Carolina to 33 NCAA Tournament wins in the 2000s, eight more than any other coach.
Over the last 10 years, Williams has won 288 games, second-most in the country, and coached four National Players of the Year. He's won 33 NCAA Tournament games and led Kansas and UNC to the Final Four five times. That's more NCAA Tournament victories and more Final Fours than any coach in the nation in those 10 years.
His teams at Kansas and UNC have a record of 643-163 and his winning percentage of .798 is the fourth highest in the history of college basketball and No. 1 among active coaches. No other coach in NCAA history has won 600 or more games in fewer than 24 seasons, a mark he hit in his 22nd season."
"In 2010, The Sporting News surveyed a panel of 50 former ACC standout players and asked them which current ACC coach they would want to play for other than their alma mater's - Williams received 19 votes. No other coach received more than 8.5 votes."
Chew on that Scrappy Doo.
that's pretty impressive... except for the part about 4 being > 2.
Roy doesn't have the benefit of using paid players or having one of the best college basketball teams of all time throw a game for them because of a bookie.
