Generally speaking I don’t trust guys with two first names, but Bradley Dale Peveto (pronounced PEE-veh-toe) might have to be the exception. Bradley Dale Peveto (“BDP” as I will now refer to him) was officially announced by the University of Kentucky as the new Safeties/Special Teams coach for the UK football team. BDP is the latest addition to the continually growing Stoops coaching staff.
BDP has been in the coaching game for 26 years, including a 4-year stint as the head coach of Northwestern State. Anytime you can pull an assistant coach with head coaching experience, that has to be a plus. BDP was also an assistant coach with LSU in 2007 when they won the national championship.
Mark Stoops is fired up about the hire. “Bradley Dale impressed me greatly during the year we worked together,” said Stoops, who was on the University of Houston staff with Peveto during the 2000 season. “He has relentless work ethic and excellent experience as a special teams coordinator and defensive coach.”
BDP is excited about the opportunity to work with Stoops again, and the opportunity to build the program at Kentucky. “I knew the year we coached together at Houston that Coach Stoops had a great defensive mind and was one of the best coaches–both in teaching players on the field and building relationships with them off the field– I’ve ever known. I believed he had all the qualities necessary to become a head coach and I’m proud to join the staff at the University of Kentucky.”
