When Williams arrived in North Carolina in 2003, it was his second stint with them, but this time as head coach.

He had an average debut season, leading the team to a 19-11 record. But next season was a completely different scenario, as he took the team to the NCAA title. They beat Illinois in the final to win their first title since 1993.

UNC was consistently one of the best teams in the NCAA following that season, going on to win the title in 2009 as well. They outclassed Michigan State in the final to win their second title in five years.

The Tarheels' next seasons were mediocre, bar the 2011-12 season where they had 32 wins. Then in 2017, he led them to the promised land once again, as UNC won their third title under Williams.

Along with these three NCAA titles, Williams has also led the team to nine ACC regular-season titles and won the ACC tournament thrice.
