He’s known as the godfather of Boise State. His statue sits┬ájust outside Albertsons Stadium. Last night, we lost one of the greats. Those who knew him and are now playing in the NFL react to Coach’s passing.

 

 

Lyle Smith served as head football coach at Boise Junior College starting in 1947. He stayed for 20 years at the school only leaving for military duty.

His coaching stint didn’t stop there. Coach Smith was the head basketball coach at Boise Junior College and then moved on to becoming the athletic director from 1968-1981. Basically, he ruled the world of athletics when it came to Boise Junior College – later Boise State University (around 1965).

At 101 years young, Lyle Smith, father of Boise State football, has passed.
