Williams’ new deal for the 2019-20 season includes a raise and more incentives. His base salary next season will be $408,169, extending to $595,409 in the final year. There is also a deferred compensation that starts at just more than $1.5 mill next year and goes up to $1.75 mill by the end of the contract. The incentives include: $75,000 for every annual A.P.R score that is 975 or better; $25,000 for each NCAA tournament appearance; $100,000 for winning one NCAA tournament game; $150,000 each time UNC reaches a Sweet 16; $200,000 each time UNC reaches the Elite Eight, and another $200,000 if the team makes the Final Four; and $250,000 if UNC wins a national title under Williams.
The university has Williams for a 13th season in the fall. His career record is 750-202, and a 332-101 mark at Carolina; following his records, school AD Bubba Cunningham said, “We are certainly pleased to extend coach Williams’ contract for two years beyond what was already in place…”
It should be a very eventful season. (Hooray more sweater vests and sweats).
