UNC extends Williams’ contract until 2018; Hatchell, Fox too

North Carolina has agreed to a contract extension with men’s basketball coach Roy Williams through 2018.
In the deal announced Thursday, Williams’ base salary will be $325,000 with supplemental income ranging from $1.35 million to $1.65 million.
He will receive a $30,000 expense allowance this season and $40,000 in each of the next six years and is also eligible for standard bonuses for reaching and advancing through the NCAA Tournament and for meeting or exceeding a NCAA academic progress rate.
It is similar to the four-year extension Williams signed in May 2007, in between the two national championships he won at the school in 2005 and ’09.
The Hall of Fame coach wasn’t the only one to agreed to a contract extension Thursday. UNC also agreed to extensions with women’s basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell and baseball coach Mike Fox.
“I’ve had the privilege to work with Roy, Sylvia and Mike — three of the true giants in their respective coaching worlds — for a long and successful period,” athletics director Dick Baddour said.
“Carolina is a special place and it’s people like them that makes it so. I am proud that one of my final responsibilities as director of athletics was to help secure their long-term commitment to the university.”
Hatchell is in her 26th season coaching the Tar Heels, leading them to a national title in 1994. Fox is in his 14th season and owns the best winning percentage in the country among active coaches. Both received extensions through 2018.
