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: Grading Tar Heels' Targets at 2014 Nike Peach Jam

Jul 24 2014 7:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Late Night With Roy Williams
UNC basketball lives by its recruiting prowess, and that means keeping a close eye on events such as the 2014 Nike Peach Jam. The championships of the Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) played out in South Carolina last weekend, and a healthy supply of the stars who were on hand are on the radar of Roy Williams and his assistants for their 2015 and 2016 recruiting classes. Of course, some of those potential Tar Heels fared a lot better than others as the weekend ...

The Player Most Responsible for Each Great College Basketball Coach's Legacy

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

Late Night With Roy Williams
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 today without Udonis Haslem? How much of Tom ...

UNC Basketball: Why Justin Jackson Should Be a Starter in 2014-15 Season

Jun 12 2014 7:46pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

2014 NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp
The top two recruits in UNC basketball’s freshman class, Justin Jackson and Theo Pinson, play the same position. Both small forwards are immensely talented, but if Roy Williams has to choose only one for his starting lineup, Jackson needs to be the pick. Physically, Jackson (6’7”, 185 pounds) and Pinson (6’6”, 190) are similar enough to be interchangeable. They’re similarly comparable in raw athleticism, though Pinson ...

UNC Basketball: Why Tar Heels Should Amp Up Defensive Pressure in 2014-15

Jun 5 2014 7:48pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Late Night With Roy Williams
With its history of overwhelming offensive firepower, UNC basketball hasn’t been a program that’s emphasized winning games with defense. The Tar Heels won’t lack for scoring in 2014-15, either, but coach Roy Williams would do well to take a page out of Rick Pitino’s playbook when it comes to next season’s D. Pitino’s uptempo Louisville teams have shown that gaudy offensive numbers and an aggressive, turnover-hunting defense are not mutually exclusive. W ...

UNC Basketball: Will Isaiah Hicks Bounce Back as a Sophomore?

May 29 2014 7:22pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Maryland v North Carolina
At this time last year, Isaiah Hicks was the most anticipated arrival in a stacked freshman class for UNC basketball. Following a wretched debut season, Hicks has a lot of catching up to do just to reach the bar set by classmates Nate Britt and Kennedy Meeks, let alone to live up to his billing as a future Tar Heels star. The 6’8” forward still has ample time to recover from his slow start and prove that he deserved his high school ...
