Georgetown Prep graduate, Arthur Smith, is a big part of the Titans deep playoff run this season.

The first-year offensive coordinator has helped guide veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who started the season as Marcus Mariota’s backup, to his best season in the NFL. He has also installed an offense that features the NFL’s leading rusher, Derrick Henry, in a prominent role to help take the Titans to the AFC championship game.

Smith, who graduated from Georgetown Prep in 2001, guided the Little Hoyas to an undefeated season and an IAC championship as a senior.

He was inducted into the Georgetown Prep Athletic Hall of Fame in 2017, just two years before being promoted to offensive coordinator for the Titans.

Smith started his NFL coaching career when he was named the defensive quality control coach for the Washington Redskins back in 2007.

You may have also heard of his father’s company. Arthur Smith’s father, Frederick W. Smith, is the founder, chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx.
