Hard Work: A Life on and Off the Court

One of the most successful basketball coaches in the nation tells the story of his life, from his turbulent childhood through a coaching career with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Williams recounts how he recruits, teaches, and motivates his players; how he's shepherded teams through some of the most nail-biting games, and how he coached his team through one of the roughest seasons of his tenure.
Now in paperback, updated with an afterword and new photos. One of the most respected and successful basketball coaches in the nation, Coach Roy Williams has traveled an unlikely path. In Hard Work, he tells the story of his life, from his turbulent childhood through a coaching career with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. With his new afterword, Williams takes us past the two NCAA championship titles to the subsequent 2010 season, its shake-up losses, the unexpected departure of key players, and on to a new season of coaching some of the most dazzling young players in the country--and a surprising ACC championship. Williams recounts his rough early years; his long tenure as head coach at the University of Kansas; how he recruits, teaches, and motivates his players; how he's shepherded teams through some of the most nail-biting games at both Kansas and UNC; and how he suffered through one of the roughest seasons of his tenure and came out on the other side to be awarded 2011 ACC Coach of the Year.

"A star coach tells his inspiring tale . . . by the end of this engaging tale, you'll realize why Williams is an unparalleled recruiter . . . He works as hard as anyone, and he knows how to tell a good story." --Sports Illustrated Coach Roy Williams is one of the most respected and successful basketball coaches in the nation; he has led the UNC team for the past 18 seasons, with 903 career wins, three national championships, led his team to five Final Fours, finished first in the ACC regular standings nine times, and won three ACC tournament championships.
