Another coach who has achieved success with two teams, UNC head coach Roy Williams, joined Phil Jackson in heading a class of seven named Monday to enter the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in September.

Williams is the third coach in history to lead two schools to the NCAA championship game. He won the championship with North Carolina in 2005 and also reached the final with Kansas.

"I'm the first to admit that I've been very lucky at Kansas and North Carolina but I'm also the one that can say Roy Williams’ knows what we went through,'' Williams told's Andy Katz.

Williams said he wishes he could split up the Hall of Fame plaque in 300 pieces to disperse to his former players and coaches. He also is indebted to his family, his wife Wanda and grown children Kim and Scott.

When reached for comment, Phil Jackson asked TAH, “How am I not in the Hall of Fame already? What’s a guy gotta do?”
