Statement from Baddour

CHAPEL HILL --- University of North Carolina Director of Athletics Dick Baddour released the following statement today regarding conversations between University of Kansas head men¹s basketball coach Roy Williams and Baddour:

"I have had several very good conversations with Roy Williams over the last two days. Those talks will continue through the weekend. The Final Four ended just a few days ago. Coach Williams and I feel the timing is too near the end of the Final Four and there is too much going on in Lawrence (Kan.) at this time for us to conclude our talks. I have not offered the job to Coach Williams, but we have had good conversations that will continue over the next few days. He understands we will continue to proceed with other candidates, as well.

"Typically I do not comment on job searches. However, this is obviously not a typical situation. Coach Williams and I both felt there was so much misinformation out there that an update to confirm our talks was both responsible and necessary."
