CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Roy Williams can add author to his list of accomplishments.

The North Carolina coach of the defending national basketball champions will have an autobiography released in November.

Algonquin Books says "Hard Work: My Life On and Off the Court" - will feature a forward from novelist John Grisham. It was written with former Sports Illustrated writer Tim Crothers.

Part of the book's proceeds will go to the Carolina Covenant, which helps low-income students obtain scholarships to the university.

Williams was a longtime assistant to Dean Smith at North Carolina before spending 15 years as head coach at Kansas. He returned to his alma mater in 2003 and has won a pair of national titles in the past five seasons.
