CANTON — Alex Smith was named quarterbacks coach for the St. Lawrence University football team on Tuesday.
Smith, formerly an assistant at Syracuse University, will take over for Tom Blumenauer, who recently accepted a position at Endicott College.
Smith threw for more than 6,000 yards and 50 touchdowns as the QB for SUNY Cortland from 2005-09.
He worked as an assistant for the Red Dragons before working with SU’s quarterbacks and tight ends for two seasons.
The Saints are coming off their first seven-win season since 1982 and a second-place finish in the Liberty League.
