At Illinois, Smith breaks ground he's broken before

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) When he took over the Chicago Bears in 2004 and again this spring when Illinois hired him, Lovie Smith broke new ground that came with his title. In each case, he was the team's first black head coach.

His childhood in East Texas prepared him for both jobs.

As a fifth-grader in Big Sandy, Smith was part of the first group of black kids to move into the small town's newly desegregated schools in the late 1960s.
