This past Monday, Roy Williams made it to his 800th coaching victory. While Adolph Rupp is ranked as the fastest coach to have reached 800 victories in terms of games, Roy Williams now takes up the second spot. In terms of seasons, Roy is actually the quickest coach to have 800 coaching wins under his belt. Roy Williams has now joined a handful of Division I men’s college basketball coaches who also achieved a similar number of victories. Thus, it is not surprising that Jordan Brand commemorated his achievement by gifting him by gifting him a special sneaker package that includes an Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle pair.
Roy Williams embarked upon his coaching career back in the early 80s and in terms of all-time NCAA Division 1 wins, Roy Williams is now at the ninth rank. However, considering how strong the University of North Carolina Tar Heels roster is at the moment, his rank is likely to improve and increase in the coming years. According to Roy himself, he apparently intends to continue pursuing his coaching career for at least anywhere between five and nine more years. If the Tar Heels continue winning as they currently are, Roy could potentially reach his 1,000th coaching victory by 2025.
As mentioned, the special package that Jordan Brand gifted to Roy Williams contains an exclusive pair of the Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle. The uppers of this sneaker appear to be dressed up entirely in a lustrous Metallic Silver hue, while it is also equipped with clean all-White inner linings and soles. One of the aspects that make the sneaker so special is the fact that it has been autographed by Michael Jordan himself, who was once a member of the Tar Heels. Furthermore, the special box containing this pair is made up of stained oak with laser engraving.
It has been made obvious that this Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle pair was a special gift that Roy Williams received from Jordan Brand. Hence, sneakerheads should not be surprised that it is never going to hit the shelves.
