In honor of Black History Month, we invited special guest, Ken Friedman on the podcast to share the untold story of how Willie Cooper broke the color line at the University of North Carolina in 1964. Ken worked behind the scenes under legendary coaches Frank McGuire and Dean Smith, and in this episode he sets the record straight of the person Willie Cooper was and how he made history in the Tar Heel program.

Wow! This is a Gem of an episode. I laughed, I cried, I learned something new! An important story of barrier breaking from a first hand ally. I’m inspired to be a better ally for my players! Thanks for telling Willie Cooper’s story coach!
