After Arizona State, Smith spent five years on the staff at Rice, serving as an assistant for the men’s and women’s teams.

Smith served as the recruiting coordinator, travel coordinator, alumni liaison, strength and conditioning liaison, and sprinting coach.

Smith spent four years as the head club coach for FAST in Montana, four years as an assistant coach at Northern Arizona University, and one year as a graduate assistant coach at Ohio University in 1990-91.

He is a 1990 graduate of Clark University in Massachusetts, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics. He followed that with a master’s in athletic administration from Ohio in 1991.

Smith and his wife, Alyssa, have three daughters, Olivia, Ella and Gwyneth.
