Chuck Smith looked right at home in purple at the first night of the Forcht Bank Bowl on Aug. 23.
The former Campbellsville High School head coach and University of Kentucky assistant is “helping out” the Bardstown defense this season.
Reportedly, Smith is still drawing a paycheck from UK and would need an additional four years to draw his state retirement if he does not go back into collegiate coaching for the 2014 season.
Smith was head coach at Allen County-Scottsville, after being an assistant at Mercer County. He came to Campbellsville and resurrected the program along with then defensive coordinator Perry Thomas.
Smith turned the Eagle reins over to Thomas, now the head coach at Campbellsville University after a stop at Paducah Tilghman. Smith went on to win numerous state titles at Boyle County before heading to be linebacker coach and recruiting coordinator on Joker Phillips’ staff in Lexington.
