North Carolina basketball is one of the most storied and successful programs of all time.

UNC has won five NCAA Championships (1957, 1982, 1993, 2005, and 2009) and are No. 3 on the all-time wins list (behind Kansas and Kentucky).

Current head coach Roy Williams bleeds Tar Heel Blue. When he attended North Carolina as a student and played on the JV team, he did everything he could to learn from Dean Smith.

Williams served as a UNC assistant under Smith for ten years (before going to coach at Kansas).

And now he has been coaching the Tar Heels since 2003, and he owns the last two of UNC's championships.

At 60, Roy Williams doesn't look as if he is considering retirement any time soon.

He is still winning (Tar Heels won the 2010-11 ACC regular season title and advanced to the 2011 Elite Eight).

But eventually, Roy will call it quits and someone will be selected to fill his shoes.

The following is the Top Ten candidates to replace Roy Williams at North Carolina.
