Steve Robinson would like to be a head coach again, but he will not be the coach at Richmond. Robinson, an assistant to Roy Williams at North Carolina, is remaining in Chapel Hill. Family considerations most likely played a role in his decision to stay at UNC.

So much for any real celebration time for North Carolina coach Roy Williams after the Tar Heels' NCAA championship last month.
The departure of his top seven scorers from his title team, including four underclassmen to the NBA Draft, has pushed Williams back to the recruiting trail with a flourish over the last several weeks.
There has been little time for his beloved hobby of golfing or basking in the glow of his first national championship — at least until the spring recruiting period ends Saturday.
"I've been in 19 states since April 6, so it's been pretty hectic," said Williams, who was in San Antonio on Thursday to speak to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches clinic. "And when you lose four underclassmen to the NBA Draft, it makes it that much more hectic."
