Legendary former UNC head coach Dean Smith passed away in February at the age of 83. During his 36-year tenure at North Carolina, Smith was known for his close relationships with his players. Those bonds extended beyond their playing careers and Smith’s time at UNC, and apparently even after he died.
According to Twitter user Jim Dempsey, Smith has willed for each of his former letterwinners to receive $200 from his trust after his passing. Here’s the letter received by former UNC guard Dante Calabria.
This is really, really awesome on Smith’s part.
