UNC head coach Roy Williams stays silent on Trump White House visit


In the aftermath of North Carolina's sixth national championship victory, head coach Roy Williams remains non-committal when asked about a potential team visit with President Trump at the White House.

Williams and his Tar Heels squad defeated Gonzaga in a 71-65 victory on Monday night, ending UNC's March Madness run defined by redemption after last year's devastating loss to Villanova. After his third national title win, Williams declined to comment on the prospect of heading to the White House to meet with Trump.

When asked his thoughts on a Washington visit last Friday, Williams responded saying, "...after the game, if we're still standing here, you can ask me and I'll give you an honest answer."

Questions around Williams' thoughts on a White House visit come after the North Carolina head coach previously said of Trump, "Our president tweets out more bulls*** than anyone I've ever seen."

When North Carolina won the the national championship in 2005, Williams and his title-claiming team did not visit the White House, which Williams said was because they were not asked until September -- when a majority of team members were involved with NBA camps and professional careers in Europe.
