UNC Hires Hubert Davis

It seems that the next head coach of the UNC Tar Heels will come from inside the family.

Hubert Davis will take the reigns from Roy Williams after the coaching legend retired last week.

Who is Hubert Davis

Hubert Davis played for North Carolina under Dean Smith and has been an assistant under Roy Williams for 9 seasons.

Hubert is someone who knows what UNC is about. He knows the culture.

He has also watched for years as one of the best to ever do it, Williams, continued to coach at the top of his profession.

Hubert also spent 12 seasons in the NBA and shared a court with the GOAT himself, MJ.

With support from the school, former players, and Williams himself, this was a no brainer for UNC.


This is a move many expected and makes sense for the Heels.

This, as they always have done, keeps it inside the family. The tradition continues.

Long tabbed to be a contender for the role, it makes sense.

We don’t know how successful the stint will be, but he was one of a few contenders for the role that actually made sense.

This will allow for Carolina to continue business as usual, and maintain a strong recruiting pipeline and classic culture.

Congrats to Hubert on the promotion and congrats on 33 fantastic years of coaching from an all-timer, in Roy Williams.
