OGDEN ? Smack in the slipstream of three bowl-bound college football teams, Weber State didn't think twice about hiring John L. Smith as its coach on Tuesday. OK, so the man once slapped himself in a press conference. Another time he ranted to a sideline reporter that "the kids are playing their tails off and the coaches keep screwing it up!"
In the 1990s, when he...
