Mikal played football himself at U of A before he got into coaching as an assistant with the Chicago Bears. Smith followed his dad from Chicago on his move to the Tampa Bay Bucs to coach defensive backs.
He also made a stop at Trinity International University as a coach before joining his father’s staff as an assistant in the NFL.
TMZ hasn’t been able to reach the Smith family at this time, but it looks like the dream of him being a real-life Pootie Tang is dead.
