Fort Lewis forced to say ‘farewell’ to John L. Smith

Famed football coach leaves Fort Lewis College a winner
In three rivalry games against Adams State, John L. Smith went 2-1 as head coach of Fort Lewis College. This year, he helped a class of 19 seniors go out as winners and gave the seniors and coaches the privilege of firing off the musket, the rivalry game’s traveling trophy.
John L. Smith may have learned to relax and be a bit more patient during three years at Division II Fort Lewis College, but he was never afraid to show his temper on the sidelines.
John L. Smith will lead a new sideline in 2016 after accepting the head coaching job at Kentucy State. It will be his seventh head coaching job.
