The son of a former NFL head coach was arrested in Tempe, Arizona, for allegedly running a prostitution ring.

Mikal Lee Smith, the son of current University of Illinois coach and ex-Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith, was indicted on several charges, including conspiracy, illegally conducting an enterprise, money laundering, pandering, sex trafficking and threatening a victim. 

Mikal Smith, 43, played at the University of Arizona and coached under his father in the NFL with the Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Mikal Smith and his co-defendant, Aprel Mae Rasmussen, are accused of operating and maintaining an illegal prostitution enterprise between December 2018 and September 2019. They allegedly encouraged a female victim to engage in acts of prostitution for over two months. 

Arizona District Attorney Mark Brnovich said Thursday night that Smith is accused of using surveillance and threats of retaliation to keep the victim under his control.

Lovie Smith has been the Illinois head football coach since 2016. He coached the Bears from 2004-12, leading the team to Super Bowl XLI, where Chicago was defeated by the Indianapolis Colts. It was the first time that two Black head coaches faced off in the Super Bowl.

Lovie Smith was the Bucs’ head coach from 2014-15. 

Mikal Smith is being held on a $100,000 bond. He is set to be arraigned on Sept. 10.
