The former football Wildcat turned Boyle County into a perennial power in Danville.
Smith took the Rebels to five consecutive state title victories (1999-2003) at two different KHSAA classification levels (AA in ’99 & ’00, AAA in ’01-’03), compiled a 142-33 record over 13 seasons, and left the Rebs with the longest public school consecutive streak of wins in state history at 47 in a row.
While at UK as an assistant from 2004-’12, Smith coached linebackers and received the title of recruiting coordinator in ’09. The likes of Wesley Woodyard, Danny Trevathan, Braxton Kelley and Micah Johnson all played for Smith at UK.
