FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Sunday in Fayetteville, the people who knew Jeff Capel Jr. the best came to say goodbye.
Capel was a coaching icon, leading programs at Fayetteville State University, North Carolina A&T University, Old Dominion, and several assistant coaching jobs in the NBA.
But mourners say his greatest joy was in his two sons, Jeff III and Jason Capel, both who are also basketball coaches now.
"What he's done with his boys, they're both coaches and teachers," said family friend Charles Waddell. "So they're following in his footsteps and so that goes on."
Among the mourners at Capel's funeral were Duke Coach Mike Kryzyzewski and the entire Duke men's basketball team.
Capel's son Jeff III played at Duke and is an assistant coach there.
