In his will, Smith directs his trust to give $200 to every letter winner who played for him during his 36 years at UNC. The checks were sent to about 180 letter winners with a letter saying “enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith.”
My wife opened the letter and handed it to me. At first I didn’t know what it was, but when it hit me, it put a tear in my eye. Even after he passed, he was still all about his players.
