Well the one year deal is in place because they don't want to get financially invested in Smith and have the option of looking for a better candidate next year at the end of season. At this point any good candidate has been taken so this actually makes total sense. This position also works for Smith as he is back getting exposure at a big program, instead of being stuck at Weber State like he was last year.
