(AP) -- North Carolina Hall of Fame coach Roy Williams is expected to be at the team's next practice and game following a bout with vertigo that sidelined him for part of Tuesday's win at Boston College.

Athletics spokesman Steve Kirschner said Wednesday that the ninth-ranked Tar Heels had a previously scheduled day off and would return to practice Thursday ahead of a weekend home game against Pittsburgh. He said Williams was back in his office Wednesday afternoon and the coach's regularly scheduled Friday news conference in Chapel Hill is still on as well.

"We expect him to be back at practice (Thursday) and coach on Sunday," Kirschner said.
