Special to The Hays Daily News

Roy Williams will make his return to Allen Fieldhouse in October.

The former University of Kansas basketball coach, who angered many Jayhawk fans in 2003 when he left for his alma mater, North Carolina, will be part of the "Celebrating 60 Years" event Oct. 27 at Allen Fieldhouse. The event is to commemorate the first 60 years of the Jayhawks' home building.

"Coaching in that arena is a real treat, and I loved it," Williams said in a press release. "I'm ecstatic to be part of this anniversary celebration."

Also on hand will be former Kansas coaches Ted Owens and Larry Brown, plus current coach Bill Self.

"Only at Kansas do we get to celebrate a milestone such as this, bringing four living legends together to honor our history and our legacy," KU Athletics Director Sheahon Zenger said in a press release.

Williams coached the Jayhawks from 1988-2003. He led the Jayhawks to four Final Fours, and to two appearances in the national championship game. The Jayhawks lost the 1991 title game to Duke and the 2003 title game to Syracuse.

Williams won nine conference titles.

Brown, now the coach at Southern Methodist, spent five seasons at Kansas, from 1983-1988. His 1988 team won the NCAA championship, 83-79 against Oklahoma.

Owens coached the Jayhawks from 1964-1983 and won six Big Eight titles. He led the Jayhawks to the Final Four in 1971 and 1974.

Self is starting his 12th season with a 175-9 record in Allen Fieldhouse.

His Jayhawks have won or shared the last 10 Big 12 championships, and his 2008 team won the NCAA title, beating Memphis 75-68 in overtime. The Jayhawks also lost the 2012 title game to Kentucky.

Ticket information for the event will be announced in early September.
