Roy Williams is a crier. The college basketball head-coaching legend is notorious for getting misty-eyed during postgame press conferences. Whether his team wins or loses, odds are that Ol’ Roy (as many of his fans and detractors call him) will turn on the eye sprinklers.
He always seemed to cry whenever his perennially highly ranked University of Kansas teams came up short in the NCAA tournament. When he finally won his first national championship in 2005 after leaving Kansas for his alma mater, the University of North Carolina, the waterworks were out in full force—this time for joy and relief instead of frustration and failure.
