NCAA: Roy Williams Says 'Serious Consequences' Await P.J. Hairston

Jul 15 2013, 6:33pm CDT | by

North Carolina Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams broke his silence on his beleaguered player, P.J. Hairston, saying there will be "serious consequences."

North Carolina Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams finally broke his silence on junior guard P.J. Hairston.

According to the Associated Press, Williams said Hairston will face "serious consequences" due to his drug charge stemming from a traffic stop arrest last month. Hairston was reprimanded by authorities twice while driving a rental vehicle which is tied up to a convicted felon. 

Williams said he and Hairston have had discussions regarding the matter with several options as consequence, including a possible suspension. 

"P.J. and I have had several discussions already and he knows he has made serious mistakes and there will be serious consequences as a result."

A separate ESPN blog confirms Williams' statement is from an email sent to UNC's media relations staff. 

The Tar Heels head coach also mentions Hairston is currently not enrolled in summer school and is not practicing with the team. Toward the end of his statement, Williams reiterated the values the school and the team place importance on and the severity of how Hairston's case will be handled. 

"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."

Hairston was issued a ticket for speeding on May 13 while driving a rented 2012 Camaro SS. The drug charge came three weeks later on June 5, when Hairston was charged for possession of marijuana and driving without a license. The vehicle Hairston was driving was a rented GMC Yukon.  

In addition, a 9-millimeter handgun and a magazine with nine rounds of ammunition found outside the GMC Yukon were also seized by authorities. USA Today Sports confirms Hairston and his two companions, Miykael Faulcon and Carlos Sanford, were not issued charges for the firearm

Hairston, UNC's leading scorer last season, posted averages of 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game, per ESPN stats.

UNC Basketball: Under-the-Radar Threats to Tar Heels in 2014-15 ACC Season

Aug 21 2014 8:29pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

UNC basketball has enough to worry about if it focuses only on the top of the ACC, where the likes of Duke, Virginia and newly arrived Louisville will all be battling the Tar Heels for supremacy. However, if Roy Williams’ troops get too wrapped up in worrying about their elite competition, they’ll be in a prime spot to get tripped up by one of the league’s less-celebrated squads. If North Carolina wants to avoid taking an upset loss ...

Confident Mike Morin shows his value as Angels reliever

Jul 28 2014 10:32pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia was asked a few days ago if rookie reliever Mike Morin gained confidence from a strikeout of Miguel Cabrera.  He shook his head and chuckled a bit. Morin, he explained, is not lacking confidence. An example off the field, one that occurred way before he was even drafted by the Los Angeles Angels, perfectly illustrates Scioscia's point.  The right-handed Morin hails from Overland Park, Kan., about 20 minutes outsi ...

Jul 24 2014 5:49pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

They say the first million dollars is the hardest, and the same should be said for the first 100 wins for a great college basketball coach. Sure, legends like Roy Williams, John Calipari and Mike Krzyzewski have no trouble landing top recruits and winning 30 games per year now, but what about back when they first started? What if Coach K wasn't able to sign Johnny Dawkins? Where would Billy Donovan be to ...
