Tonight, KSR has learned that Kentucky may be keeping their talented defensive mind after all.

House’s defense at Kentucky this past season finished as the No. 6 scoring defense and No. 23 total defense in all of college football, a unit that ultimately led the Wildcats to their best record since 1977.
To turn down a franchise set up to contend for Super Bowls for the next several years in favor of Kentucky is absolutely massive for the program.
The University of Kentucky has confirmed that Matt House has turned down Kansas City’s offer and will remain as the team’s defensive coordinator.
Massive news for the Kentucky football program.
