Neal Brown is one of the top candidates for the Kentucky offensive coordinator position, but the possibility of becoming a head coach in Conference USA has delayed a decision from the Danville native and current Texas Tech assistant. According to Football Scoop, Brown is holding off to hear from a “school in the south” about its recently vacated head coaching position, and the speculation is it’s Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles’ Yahoo! Rivals website called Brown the fastest rising candidate on the list.
It’ll be tough to convince Brown to take another coordinator job if Southern Miss, or any other school, offers him a head coaching position. He may be slipping from Kentucky’s grasp, especially if the rumors of an interview in Hattiesburg later this week are true.
