In a Twitter post by Jim Dempsey, Coach Smith left, as part of his last will and testament, a check amounting to $200, attached to which is a condition that the player will have to “enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith.”

Here is the letter in its entirety:

Dear Dante,

As you are aware Coach Dean Smith passed away on February 7, 2015. As Trustee of the Dean E. Smith Revocable Trust, I am responsible for carrying out the directions of Coach Smith with respect to a small bequest to each varsity basketball letterman he coached.

Each player was important and special to Coach Smith and when he prepared his estate plan, Coach wanted to each out to each of his letterman. Accordingly, Coach directed that following his passing, each letterman be sent a two hunder dollar ($200.00) check with the message “enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith.” Enclosed is a check in the amount of two hunder dollars ($200.00) with the nototation “Dinner out”.

Cool.
