Theo Pinson was a fan favorite during his time at UNC.

On his podcast “Run Your Race”, Theo Pinson often talks about his past and what got him to the point he is today. He has gone over a multitude of topics since the podcast began, and it is a very good listen, especially if you’re a North Carolina fan. On his most recent episode, Pinson spoke on Roy Williams and their relationship, as well as life lessons he learned from his coach.


“Coach Williams, he’s an unbelievable guy, he teaches you real life lessons. You don’t understand it at the time, you really don’t, but at the same time it’s like, the things he taught me, I understand to this day. It helps me to this day.”

“I can call Coach Williams right now and he’ll answer the phone”

“You can tell a lot of people have a lot of love for him because we had a lot of vets, a lot of pros that come back in the Summer that hooped with us, that helped us get to where we were also.”

All three of those quotes show how much respect and love Roy Williams players have for him. There was a culture built that Williams was able to maintain. When former players still hold you in such high regard, you know you made an impact.
