Kentucky is looking for a new wide receivers coach. Mark Stoops has parted ways with Lamar Thomas.
The former Miami Dolphin and Hurricane wide out spent the last two seasons coaching wide receivers in Lexington. He came to Kentucky after spending two years on Bobby Petrino’s staff at Louisville.
Thomas became a BBN favorite for trolling Louisville fans on Twitter. Now Stoops needs to fill two assistant coaching positions, one on offense and one on defense, prior to the 2018 season.
For those speculating as to why Thomas was let go:
Source tells KSR the decision to let go of Lamar Thomas was not for one particular reason but just overall need to make a change at WR Coach position

In a statement, Mark Stoops had this to say after Thomas’ contract was not renewed: “I appreciate the contributions Lamar made to our program during the last two years,” Stoops said. “We wish him the best in the future.”
