UNC women's hoops legend Smith takes top job at Elon

Posted by on Wed, Jun 22, 2011 at 11:10 PM

Charlotte Smith isn’t an assistant coach with the UNC women’s basketball program any more.

Now she’s the boss at Elon.

Elon director of athletics Dave Blank announced at a Wednesday press conference that Smith will be the Phoenix’ new head coach, replacing Karen Barefoot who is the new head coach at Old Dominion.

Smith served nine seasons under Sylvia Hatchell, helping direct the Tar Heels to four ACC titles and appearances in the NCAA Final Four in 2006 and ’07.

The 1995 national player of the year, Smith hit the buzzer-beating 3-pointer in the 60-59 victory over Louisiana Tech in the NCAA championship game in 1994. The 6-footer, who dunked in a 1994 game against North Carolina A&T, is one of two Tar Heel women’s players to have her jersey retired.
