I worked his camps at North Carolina as a young assistant coach. He took the time to get to know every single coach there and when you came back the next year he remembered your name. His fight for civil rights in North Carolina at a time when that wasn’t a popular thing to do is a testament to what type of man he was. He would do anything for his ex-players at any time. To me he is the epitome of what a coach should be.
