"I have a ball with them," he said. "I want them to respect me, but I certainly respect them and want to have good relationships with all the kids, whether they’re athletes or not. I’m going to miss that. I’m going to miss that a bunch."

Smith said he would still attend games at the school, though he said the reactions he’s been getting when telling people of his retirement are rather different.

"When you tell people, it’s almost like you’re dying or moving away," he said. "But this program will always be dear to me. I’ve got a lot of good memories."
