PRICE STATEMENT ABOUT BILL GUTHRIDGE
Washington, DC – Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement about Bill Guthridge.
“Lisa and I have known Bill and his wife Leesie for many years. He had a remarkable career on the basketball court – two national championships in three decades alongside Dean Smith and two Final Four appearances in his three seasons as Carolina’s head coach. But I will remember him most strongly for his friendship and encouragement, and for his loyalty and devotion to the students he coached and to his neighbors in the Chapel Hill community. Lisa and I and many others will miss Bill’s good nature and generosity of spirit, and we are thinking of Leesie and his family at this time of loss.”
