Andre Woodson staying on the football staff

Rejoice! According to Kyle Tucker’s hair twitter, Andre Woodson will remain on the Kentucky football staff as a graduate assistant. Woodson has worked with the UK quarterbacks for the past two seasons, and is an important young ambassador for the program and players.

Just stay away from that Smartfood popcorn, ‘Dre.

    Because QB has been such a strength…

    Just from the outside looking in, I believe this might be the first bad choice from Stoops/Brown. Andre is a great ambassador for the program and I loved what he did at UK, but he’s not a spread QB. He’s a pro style QB, and for him to be effective working with the QB’s he will not only have to buy in to the new system, he will also have to learn it. Surprised that a former Leach QB isn’t coming in to work with them.

    So it was Woodson who came up with the 4-Finger Shocker. Hmm, interesting..

    So is Darin hinshaw on the coaching staff or not?

    2 – It wasn’t a strength of Morgan Newton’s but I’m not going to blame Morgan Newton on Woodson. I don’t know if there is a QB coach in college football that could have made Newton better.

    Also, its not like he’s the QB coach. That is Neal Brown’s job in addition to running the offense, but I see no problem with having the most successful UK QB of the past decade helping out our QB’s. I’m happy that he is being retained.

    3 – A few things, Woodson is not the QB Coach….he is a GA who will be working with the QB’s. I think the QB’s and Woodson will learn the offense from Neal Brown who is their QB Coach. That doesn’t mean that Woodson can’t help them with mechanics, reading how defenses line up, and leadership on the football field.

    5 – Rumor is that he is staying with the Vols now, but I don’t know if that is official. I’m not sure if Hinshaw has made his decision yet though. Its possible that UT and UK are getting into a bidding war for his services.

    #4 the most dirtiest play in the game, they never expect it!

    Woodson was the most overrated QB at UK in as long as I can remember. The supporting cast he had – Rafael Little, Jacob Tamme, Keenan Burton, Stevie Johnson, and a strong offensive line – you would think he would do better that 8-5 and 3-5 in the SEC. Those are some of the top skill players that UK has ever had together and he went 3-5 with a home loss to an unranked Mississippi State by 17 points. Not exactly a great or even good QB in my opinion.

    For those doubters, go check his stats. I’m happy for Andre and happen to think it’s a good thing.

    I think this is HUGE. Yea hes just a grad assistant, but he’s also a guy that is a big name, has had success at UK, has a big personality, and someone “cool and young” that is associated with the program. Props to Stoops for recognizing the importance of the program’s image to young people.

    If he’s interested they need to find a way to keep Jeremy Jarmon involved with the program as well!

    Chad, you sir are an idiot. Andre was also the QB that help beat #1 LSU. Did TIM ever knock off any team in top 10?

    What why is he the QB coach? We could of gotten a way better QB coach.

    For G*d’s Sake read…he’s a GRADUATE ASSISTANT, not the QB COACH!

    Looks like our new Tight Ends coach may already be paying off on the recruiting front. Antoine Miles, 6’3″ 265lb #74 3* DT from Canton, OH has decomitted from Nebraska and will visit UK in January according to Scout.com’s Ohio recruiting analyst Bill Greene!!! Get’em Boys!!!!

    So are we going to bring back the air raid sirens? I want em’ after hearing other people play them during games. I think it could attract players for us having it back.

    18) I would even go as far as to say that if Woodson played in the Mumme system he probably would have had the same success as Couch did. Couch is the one that was overrated and it showed once he got to the NFL.Hell Dusty Bonner led the SEC in passing. He even got a 300 pound quarterback a cup of tea in the NFL.

    #10- The most over rated qb in UK history is Tim Couch. Screen pass to Yeast and let him run it for 50 yards. 80-90% of his passing yards were YAC

    @25 & 26 = Blasphemers.

    Couch was #1 coming out of H.S., Parade mag All American………..chose Kentucky…..and he was great @ UK.

    Had no chance in Cleveland as a pro.

    #25 and #26 you are no longer allowed to talk football because you have just proved you know nothing. Couch was just short of killed in the Pros. He was sacked more in a 3 year span then anyone in the history of the NFL. He led that Sh$$ team to the playoffs with nothing.

    Couch should have stayed his last year at UK. Cleveland was not going to be anything as an expansion team. The O line they had never gave Couch the protection he needed. Just what would have been for him if he had stayed one more year at UK.

    Nothing against Andre, but it would have seemed to make more sense to bring in Couch, Jared Lorenzen, or even Dusty Bonner to coach QB’s since they played in the Air Raid offense. I think Neal Brown is actually going to coach the QB’s, but this person will be working closely with him, I would imagine.

    Going along with what most of y’all are saying, HE IS NOT THE QB COACH…he’s a GA that will be working with the QBs because he is a QB. It just happens that he is a UK great and has been around the program for a long time now. He is great to have around and I think it helps that he already knows most of the players. He’s not some old codger that is unable to learn a new offense (i.e. Neal Brown’s new offense).

    Just got done watching highlights from Couch era. He threw 66 passes against LSU one year. Hope Brown will go back to that offence. Very fun to watch. My opinion is Towles would be great in that offence. Anyway I had forgot just how good Couch was. #25 and 26 you two know nothing about football or are just extremely jealous of a local boy who did good for his self
