Coach Staley kicks off the first week of Black History Month with history-maker Carla Williams, athletic director at the University of Virginia. Carla and Coach Staley discuss the magnitude of being the first Black female athletic director to lead a Power Five athletic department, the importance of maintaining one’s integrity in the face of opposition and how they each define success. Plus, Carla shares her first memory of watching women’s sports — and it involves another hoops legend.
