UCLA All-American and NCAA team champion Amy Smith returns to Westwood as a volunteer assistant coach.
Smith was an assistant coach at Missouri from 2007-11 and helped guide the Tigers to their first-ever NCAA Championship appearance in 2010. Also the team choreographer and balance beam coach, she helped Sarah Shire earn a runner-up finish on floor at the 2010 NCAA Championships and the 2009 Big 12 beam title. Additionally, under Smith's tutelage, Adrianne Perry won two consecutive Big 12 floor titles in 2008 and 2009.
Smith, who will also be coaching at the Broadway Gymnastics School in Los Angeles, got her coaching start at UCLA in 1998 as an undergraduate assistant coach, and she became an established choreographer for schools in the SEC, choreographing six All-Americans at Florida from 2003-06. She also choreographed floor routines for Kentucky from 2004-05.
A 2001 UCLA graduate, Smith was the Bruins' team co-captain in 1996 and 1997, leading UCLA to a close runner-up finish in 1996 and to its first NCAA Championship in 1997. She earned first-team All-America honors on floor exercise in 1997 and 1995 and on vault in 1997. She was also the 1997 Pac-10 floor exercise and West Region vault champion and the 1996 West Region floor champion.
