When Frank McGuire took over in 1952, North Carolina's fate as one of the nation's best teams was sealed. He led the Tar Heels to the national championship and an undefeated season in 1957. At UNC, he coached future NBA executives and coaches like Billy Cunningham, Brown, Donnie Walsh, and Doug Moe. McGuire also brought on Smith as an assistant. When McGuire left to coach the Philadelphia Warriors, Smith took over in 1961. (Sports Central)
