Roy Williams rips Doug Gottlieb for claiming he’d retire

North Carolina head coach Roy Williams is 65 years old, and isn’t going to coach forever. But to think he’s even close to being finished is a mistake no one should make, unless you want to draw the ire of Williams himself.

CBS Sports’ Doug Gottlieb suggested that Williams was going to retire after this season, which led to Williams ripping Gottlieb after the Thar Heels’ 96-71 win over Miami on Saturday afternoon. It was a pretty length rant against Gottlieb, which you can read below thanks to Andrew Carter of the Charlotte Observer.

Gottlieb did respond to Williams via Twitter, saying that he didn’t report that he was going to retire. Instead, Gottlieb claims that he was just relaying what he had heard while still suggesting that Williams’ health would make him want to leave.
