'Voice of the Tar Heels' Woody Durham retiring after 40 years ‎

CHAPEL HILL, NC (NBC Sports) - Longtime North Carolina radio play-by-play announcer Woody Durham is retiring after four decades.

Durham had been known as the "Voice of the Tar Heels" since September 1971. The school announced his retirement in a news release Tuesday night.

Durham had called more than 1,800 football and men's basketball games. That included four NCAA men's basketball championship victories — the 1982 and 1993 titles under Dean Smith as well as the 2005 and 2009 titles under Roy Williams.
