ICTV: Roy Williams on Wainstein Report
"It's a very sad time for me, as I guy that works at the University of North Carolina, that went to school here, that was an assistant coach here, that if you cut me open it's the color I bleed. We made some mistakes for a long time and it's a very, very said time for us, that we're going through this... I'm very proud of the way this University will bounce back and I'm proud of the discussions we've had....
"I didn't like the clustering (in AFAM), and yes they made very good grades. I wanted our guys to choose what they wanted to choose. I thought we did a great job and our kids did a great job ... We let kids choose what they wanted to. If you ask Marcus Paige what I told him to major in, he'll tell you I didn't. We thought we were doing the right thing, felt very comfortable about it. Our kids that were in AFAM tried to do the right thing and do the work they were assigned. I'm dumbfounded by everything that came out in the report this week ...
"I'll always be sad about the image that we have right now around the country. We've had one of the greatest images you can possibly have and we'll work hard to get that image back to where it was. I'm very proud to be a part of that, that is going to try and make the University have that image again.
"Who knows (what the NCAA will do)? … Nobody knows what's going to happen with the NCAA, but I feel strongly -- strongly -- that we did things the right way. ... I'm proud of the fact that we tried to get kids to major in what they wanted to. I'm proud of the things we've done academically. I didn't like everything that was in the report, there's no question I'd probably disagree with some of those things, but the thing about it is we tried to do the right thing and I can't determined what the NCAA is going to do. They've got to do what they want to do. I personally don't see anything there in men's basketball that somebody can immediately look at ...
"There hasn't been a day in my life that I haven't been extremely concerned about doing things the right thing academically..."
