CHAPEL HILL – University of North Carolina men’s basketball head coach Roy Williams issued the following statement today:

“I initially decided not to make a statement about PJ (Hairston) until the legal process had been finalized. I believe that is the fair way that everyone should be treated and is the way of our country.

PJ and I have had several discussions already and he knows he has made serious mistakes and there will be serious consequences as a result. Certainly the idea of suspending PJ has been discussed. However, he is not currently enrolled in summer school, is not practicing with the team and we have no games until November. There are several options available in terms of discipline but we are going to wait until the process is complete to decide on those options.

Other issues have been written about recently that are disturbing and bother me deeply. Our basketball program is based on great ideals and these issues are embarrassing. These are not common in my 10 years as head coach at UNC and they will all be dealt with harshly and appropriately at the correct time to ensure that our program will not be compromised.

We will care about each individual but there will be serious actions taken that will fix these issues. I take pride in our values and how we have conducted ourselves for a long time here at Carolina and this time will pass but it will be dealt with strongly.

We are talking about a program that has been a model of success on and off the court and it will be again. I want to thank our fans for their patience, understanding and support.”

    Translation: Roy wants to find a way not to suspend him.

  • Dale Fulton said,

    This is definitely not the carolina I went to. I have a hard time relating to the ideals Roy refers to and have a hard time convincing myself that he believes his own BS. The program has been compromised at all levels in the process. The sad thing is that they compromise admission standards and graduation standards at the expense of the University’s reputation.

    Coach Roy Williams will come down hard on this. He and North Carolina will not stand back and tolerate this type of bad behavior.

    There will be a healing in Chapel Hill.

    P.J. Hairston will not play for the Tar Heels this upcoming season.
