FAYETTEVILLE -- Former University of Arkansas women's basketball standout Christy Smith officially returned to Fayetteville as the staff's newest assistant coach, as announced by head coach Jimmy Dykes in a press conference Monday.

Smith, an All-American and WNBA player, joins the Razorback staff as the top assistant and will work with every aspect of the Razorback program.

"This is a homerun hire for Razorback nation," Dykes said at the formal introduction. "It's a new day in Arkansas women's basketball. Christy Smith's resume speaks for itself."

Prior to Arkansas, Smith spent three seasons each with Purdue University and Valparaiso University in her home state of Indiana. While at Purdue, Smith served as an assistant coach. She helped the Boilermakers to three consecutive NCAA Tournament second round appearances during her tenure. Purdue was 77-27 while Smith was an assistant.

The Oxford, Ind., native was a four-time honorable mention All-American as a point guard for the Razorbacks, was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll three times, and earned first team All-SEC as a senior after twice being named second team All-SEC. In 1995, Smith earned SEC Freshman of the Year recognition.

A three-time team captain, Smith ranks eighth all-time at Arkansas in scoring with 1,459 career points, ranks fourth in school history with 507 career assists and third with 239 steals. Smith was inducted into the University of Arkansas Hall of Honor in 2005, becoming the fifth women's basketball player in program history to receive such an honor.

Following her successful senior campaign, Smith was drafted No. 17 overall by the Charlotte Sting in 1998 where she played two seasons for the WNBA franchise.
