ALTAMONT — Brad Smith, the legendary, longtime head coach of the Labette County Grizzlies boys basketball team, informed USD 506 this week that he will retire from coaching and teaching effective immediately. 

“It was a shock quite honestly,” Labette County athletic director and head football coach Sean Price said. “Coach Smith is always energetic and he loves kids. His life is all about kids. So I was surprised, I really didn’t see it coming. I don’t think anybody did. Coach Smith is somebody who thinks things through and this is the decision he came up with. So I’m sure it was the best thing for him and his family.”
