William J. ("Bill") Brooks (1922-2010) is the first--and so far, the only--representative of UNCW in the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame.

Brooks retired in 1991 following a 40-year career at UNCW. He garnered many honors for his success as athletics director and coach. He is the namesake for Brooks Field.
