Legendary basketball coach leaves $200 will for every player to enjoy night out

What a guy...

‘Drinks are on me!’

Legendary basketball coach Dean Smith left $200 in his will to every single one of his former players – so they could all enjoy a night out in his honour.

Even world-famous NBA star and ex-student Michael Jordan got some beer tokens from his old coach.

Smith coached at the University of North Caroline for 36 seasons – so we imagine it must have been a pretty tab.
