Seemingly, Eddie Smith has been around the world and back. For such a young guy, he’s taken on new challenges at every turn, no matter where that opportunity is located or in what form it happens to be. Now he’s landed at Utah Valley University, certainly one of the most picturesque campuses on which he’s landed. You’ll especially want to go back and listen to our chat with Coach Smith in episode 160 when he was the head coach at Lower Columbia College. It’s in that episode that you get a great insight into what drives this young coach.
In this episode, Coach Smith talks about his early coaching, the decision processes for each stop along the way, considering future options in the decision making process, questions to ask yourself, lessons learned, questions to ask any potential employer, his road since we last talked, how the opportunity at Utah Valley came along, the history and information about UVU, determining fit, facilities, culture, recruiting, and some news about an addition to the family!
Listen to our first interview with Eddie Smith in episode 160 from November, 2013.
