UK coach Matthew Mitchell singing his way to recruiting


UK women’s basketball head coach Matthew Mitchell is a man of many talents. When most fans think of him, they immediately think of his dance moves during Big Blue Madness. Others may know of his talent behind the microphone and singing.

This week, Mitchell and his staff hit the road to begin a new recruiting process. Yesterday, he posted a video on his way to Indianapolis where he mentioned how excited he was to start the new recruiting process. Like any true performer, he used the opportunity to show off his pipes.

While on his way back to the Bluegrass today to continue his recruiting trail, Mitchell checked back in to continue in the singing pattern:

This shows off the fun loving personality of Mitchell and should help relate to the younger generation.

The UK women have a bright future ahead of them with some strong players coming in and Rhyne Howard returning for her sophomore season.

The question I have to ask is why we don’t get a John Calipari singing video on the way to recruit? We have had a rapping governor and a singing women’s coach, so the ball is in Cal or Mark Stoops’ court. How will they take it?

    Cute story. Meanwhile the coach up the road at Ghetto U is kicking his ass in actual results.

      Agreed. His act is getting old. I think the program peaked about five years ago.

    It’s getting really old listening to him to try to sing and dance, and get whipped by UofL every year. His time is up

      UK is 3-3 in the last 6 games, with each winning 3 in a row.

    Oh you keyboard fans! This whole thing is about higher education! Wake up keyboard warriors. If the team has fun and they become successful in life than sing and dance Coach Mitchell. I hope he stays until he retires just to piss you off!
    Get a clue!

    I really am surprised he’s still around. Especially after a few seasons ago when almost the entire team and some of the coaches bailed. I still say something of significance took place at that time.

    Coach Mitchell owns KSR.
