Jonathan Smith Career
- On November 29, 2017, Smith was given the position of head coach at Oregon State.

This occurred six games into Andersen’s third season. Prior to Smith’s arrival, Oregon State had a combined record of 12–36 in its previous four seasons.
- Smith finally achieved success in his fourth season as head coach at Oregon State, when he led the Beavers to their first winning record with a record of 7-6 and was invited to the 2021 LA Bowl.
- After a convincing victory against Florida in the 2022 Las Vegas Bowl (30–3), the Oregon State University Beavers advanced to the next level by achieving their third 10-win season in the history of the program in 2022.

- After Smith’s first winning season in 2021, his contract was amended, keeping him signed through the 2027 season and calling for him to make $3.25 million beginning with the 2022 season onwards. This was all a part of the deal to retain Smith with the team through the 2027 season.
