Smith, 51, insists he harbors no ill will toward the franchise. “I don’t know why it would leave a bitter taste in my mouth,” he said. “I think I decided I was going to walk out of the door one day almost the same way I walked in and never be heard from again. And pretty much until this point in time, that’s been the truth. I kind of walked in almost the same way. “It was the DeVoses’ keys. When they decide to ask for them and they want them, they can get them. Or else if I didn’t see things running the way I thought it should run, then I was going to walk out the door. I thought it ended the way it should have.”
