Dean Smith, the legendary basketball coach for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, died in early February.
Turns out that in his will, Smith specified that every player who earned a varsity letter while he was there was to get a check for $200 along with a note encouraging them to a dinner out.
Compliments of Coach Dean Smith.
