The former UNC head coach passed away Saturday night after years of battling dementia. One of the greatest coaches of all time - professional or collegiate. Hailed as the only person who was able to keep Jordan from scoring 20 a game. Classy and innovative until the end.

Been so busy lately, forgot to add to this post - RIP Bill Guthridge who passed away last week. He sat on the bench with Coach Smith for 30+ years, turning down head coaching gigs along the way. When he finally got his shot as the man in charge in Chapel Hill, all he did was take them to two Final Fours in 3 years.

He will never be remembered the same way Dean Smith was, but he was just as big a part of Tar Heel basketball as anyone ever has been.
