INSTITUTE, WV -

The West Virginia women's basketball team are a family in more ways than one. The head coach and assistant coach are father and son. Longtime college coach, David Smith, is in his second season as WVSU's head coach. His son, Scottie, is his assistant.

"I always wanted to coach with him, and this is the first opportunity I've had to do it," said Scottie Smith.

Marla, the wife to David and mother to Scottie, appreciates the circumstances that have given them this chance to coach together. 

The Yellow Jackets are 1-1 on the young season. Their next game is Tuesday, Nov. 19, at Rio Grande.
