Calipari: Dean Smith was the original players-first coach


When I went to Dean Smith’s basketball camp as a counselor and began to work for Larry Brown, who played and coached under Dean Smith, he gave me the vision to make it about the kids. He made everything he did about them. It may seem crazy to think that something so logical as making it about the kids as innovative, but Dean Smith made it part of the foundation that we coach on today. (CoachCal.com)
