Coach Tim Smart Bio
Coach Tim Smart played two seasons of college football on the offensive line for East Carolina University. He was serving as an Air Force officer in Pensacola, Florida, when he began his women’s football coaching career.
Coach Smart got his start in women’s football as the head coach of the Pensacola Power from 2001-2003. Coach Smart led the Power to the 2001 NWFA national title game, where they fell to the Philadelphia Liberty Belles. In 2002, Smart again guided Pensacola to an outstanding season, falling to the eventual NWFA champion Detroit (Demolition) Danger in the league semifinals by a 14-7 score.
Coach Smart led the Power to a 7-0 record to start the 2003 season before military orders required him to move and leave the team; the Power would go on to make their second national championship game appearance in three years. In his three seasons with the Pensacola Power, Coach Smart guided the team to a 24-2 record as their head coach. Coach Smart would take the helm of the Tacoma (Seattle) Majestics in 2005; in one season as head coach, Smart would lead the Majestics to a 10-2 record and an appearance in the IWFL conference championship game.
With four seasons of head coaching experience under his belt, Coach Smart arrived in D.C. in 2006 and was hired as the offensive line coach under legendary Divas head coach Ezra Cooper. In his first season as an assistant, Coach Smart was named the NWFA Offensive Assistant Coach of the Year, as he molded the Divas’ offensive line into a powerful unit. Smart was an assistant coach for the D.C. Divas for three seasons from 2006-2008, guiding the team to a 23-5 record and winning a national championship as an assistant coach on the Divas’ 2006 squad.
In 2009, Coach Smart left the Divas and was named as the first head coach of the Keystone Assault. Smart was the head coach of the Assault for two seasons, compiling a 10-6 record as a head coach from 2009-2010. In 2011, Coach Tim Smart returned to the D.C. Divas when he was hired as the third head coach in team history.
