Coach Hunt's knowledge and coaching ability are undeniable, but what we are going to miss the most is his ability to build relationships with his players. Coach Hunt treated his players like they were his own and his desire for them to improve and succeed were clearly reflected in how he ran his program. The positive impact that Coach Hunt had on the hundreds of players that participated in his program during his tenure is undeniable and unquestionably his greatest legacy.
