North Carolina’s Roy Williams leaves empty seat for Bo Ryan’s late father

2 Comments

The father/son relationship can be a special one, and that was certainly the case for Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan and his father Butch. The two attended the Final Four together every year, but sadly the elder Ryan passed away in August 2013 at the age of 89.

Bo Ryan led Wisconsin to the Final Four last season, and tonight he’s looking to lead the Badgers to their first national title since 1941. And that led to a touching gesture by North Carolina head coach Roy Williams, who made sure that an empty seat was left open in memory of Butch Ryan.
