Dean Smith left a special gift behind for his basketball players!

This February, the sports world lost a true legend when iconic North Carolina Tar Heels basketball coach Dean Smith passed away at 83 years old.

However, his former players are learning today that the bond they shared with their coach is still alive and well.

Before he died, Coach Smith wanted to make sure his players (specifically his lettermen players) knew how much they meant to him, so he made sure to leave them a little present in his will!

So what exactly did he leave them? Well, Dean made sure a letter was sent to 180 of his former players containing a check for $200 and a note to "enjoy a dinner out"!

Awwwww! How sweet is that!!

Former UNC player Jim Dempsey posted a picture of the letter he and many others received this morning, and we're sure more than a few players were fighting back some waterworks when this came in the mail!

See the whole note (below)!
