Frank McGuire laid the foundation - 11 years, 73.9% Wins, 5 ACC's, 1 Natty


Then UNC was caught up a in point shaving scandal, McGuire was fired and Smith who joined as an assistant in 1958.

When McGuire walked into the chancellor's office to resign, Aycock knew Smith was in the car waiting for McGuire. He called Smith in and offered him the HC. Per Wiki, Aycock said wins & losses didn't matter as much as running a clean program and representing the university well.

No national search or consultation firm involved. Very different times.
