Coach's Life by Dean Smith

Book Description

For almost forty years, Dean Smith coached the University of North Carolina basketball team with unsurpassed success, having an impact both on the court and in the lives of countless young men. In A Coach s Life, he looks back on the great games, teams, players, strategies, and rivalries that defined his career and, in a new final chapter, discusses his retirement from the game. The fundamentals of good basketball are the fundamentals of character passion, discipline, focus, selflessness, and responsibility and superlative mentor and coach Dean Smith imparts them all with equal authority."
