North Carolina basketball head coach Roy Williams had surgery to remove a tumor from his kidney on Wednesday, WRAL News is reporting. The station is also reporting that Williams is also scheduled to have another procedure on his left kidney in October.
The station reports that Williams, 62, has battled various ailments that have been tied to his kidney condition:
Williams has dealt with vertigo, an inner ear condition that impacts balance, since 2007. Although it hasn’t caused Williams to miss any games, the vertigo symptoms have forced him to sit down at times during games.
There has been no official statement from UNC regarding Williams. The Tar Heels are scheduled to start their season Oct. 12 with their "Late Night With Roy" exhibition, with an exhibition game against Shaw scheduled for Oct. 26.
