Stefanie Smith returned to the Hoya staff in 2012 after a one-year hiatus. She initially joined the Hoyas staff in 2008 as a volunteer assistant coach after spending two years as an assistant coach at Duke University as well as a third season in 2011.

Smith, formerly Stefanie Sparks, graduated from Duke in May of 2005 after playing four years on both the defense and the midfield for the Blue Devils. As a senior, Smith helped lead Duke to the Final Four for the second time in school history and the first-ever ACC Tournament Championship.

In her four years in Durham, including two seasons as a co-captain, Smith helped lead the Blue Devils to a 53-23 overall record and four-consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament while starting every game.

Smith also garnered the Coaches Award and was a two-time recipient of the Leadership Award which was eventually named after her for the player who "best exeplifies the qualities of a great leader."

She holds the school record for minutes played and ranks amont the top players all-time for most consecutive starts (76), games played (76) and games started (76). Smith was a member of the 2004-05 U.S. Development team.

A history and political science major at Duke, Smith earned her law degree in 2010 from the Georgetown University Law Center.

She currently works as an associate for Ekstrand & Ekstrand, LLP based in Durham, N.C., and is licensed to practice law in both North Carolina and New Jersey. Smith is also an alumni interviwer for the law school.
