John L Smith to Weber State

John L. Smith officially returned to his alma mater as the new head coach at Weber State yesterday.

Smith has had head coaching stops at Idaho, Utah State, Louisville and Michigan State, and will take over a Wildcat program that finished the season at 5-6.

Athletic director Jerry Bovee is fully aware of the sideline personality that comes along with Smith, saying "I want to be surrounded by people that I have to pull back a little and not push forward, I built our staff that way, so that doesn't scare me."

John L. brings a career record of 132-86 as a head coach, and will surely add some excitement to the sidelines in Ogden, Utah. We'll keep you posted as he makes some decisions about his staff.
