UNC has named Roy Williams’ successor.

On Monday, the university announced it has hired Hubert Davis as its next men’s basketball coach.

For the past 9 seasons, Davis has been on the bench alongside Williams.

Davis, himself a former Tar Heel guard and 12-year NBA veteran graduated from UNC in 1992.

He’s also worked as an ESPN analyst and the co-host of College GameDay.

Davis has mighty big shoes to fill, as he takes the place of the retiring Williams.
