CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina says Roy Williams' second kidney tumor isn't cancerous.
The school announced the test results Thursday night, a day after the Hall of Fame men's basketball coach had a biopsy of the tumor discovered on his left kidney. The school says the tumor is the same kind of non-cancerous growth that was surgically removed from his right kidney on Sept. 19.
Dr. Eric Wallen, one of Williams' surgeons, said in a statement that the 62-year-old coach won't need surgery on the left kidney. Wallen said Williams should be ready for the start of preseason practice next week.
In a statement, Williams said his family was ``overwhelmed'' by messages of support from former players, fellow coaches and friends.
