Forty years ago, Roy Williams, with his wife Wanda and their year-old son Scott, moved to Chapel Hill to take a part-time position on Dean Smith’s coaching staff.
They settled into a two-bedroom apartment at Glen Lennox, and that community became home to the Williams family for three years. They first lived at No. 36 Hamilton Road, and after one year moved literally next door to a three-bedroom unit because daughter Kimberly was on the way.
“Sometimes,” Williams says whimsically, “I will drive through Glen Lennox and pass that first apartment, and I will think I’ve come a long way since then.” But Williams has fond memories, and some funny ones, of his first home in the town where he is now the most recognizable figure.Click here to read Art Chansky’s story about Roy Williams’ first home in Chapel Hill on Chapelboro.com.
