If there isn't much you know about Coach Smith know one of the few great things - he recruited the greatest basketball player of all -time in Michael Jordan. Not only was that a very important milestone in his career but his way of teaching the game of basketball was unlike any other. Coach Smith coached UNC Men's Basketball from the 60's to the late 90's. That is 30years of hoops at one school with the same gameplan & 30 years of the game basketball shifting itself. Within all those 30 years he managed to be the all-time winningest coach when he retired. It's a tragic to see sport history lose such an important part of itself but legends live forever, especially in the name of sports. To Coach Smith the world thanks you for you teachings & the way you changed not only college basketball but basketball forever. You will forever live long.
