Dean Smith, Coaching Legend, Dies at 83

Dean Smith was an innovator. From having his players huddle before free throws to starting five seniors on Senior Day to calculating points per possession, the former North Carolina basketball coach was ahead of his time. He died at the age of 83 on Saturday. While many college coaches are praised for being more than just a coach, Smith, a civil rights pioneer, really was. Read my tribute to him on CBS Local.
