UNC's Roy Williams recovering from knee replacement surgery

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina Hall of Fame men's basketball coach Roy Williams is recovering from knee replacement surgery.

In an email Friday, athletics spokesman Steve Kirschner says Williams is "resting comfortably" after the procedure on his right knee performed by Dr. Walt Beaver in Charlotte. Kirschner says there's no exact recovery timetable but Williams is expected to be on the road for July recruiting "as usual."

The 65-year-old Williams had procedures on both knees last year but experienced discomfort during the season as the Tar Heels won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles before losing in the NCAA title game on a last-second shot to Villanova.
