Butch Jones, one of the top candidates in UK’s head coaching search, told FOX19 on Monday that he hasn’t heard from the Wildcats:
“You hear things out there and I think that’s a compliment to our football program. But, all my energy and focus is on the University of Cincinnati and getting a quality bowl game. I live in a bunker, I study film and all my effort and energy is on every single player in our football program.”
On Sunday, rumor spread that Kentucky had offered the job to Jones, which the school quickly denied. Interestingly, Jones didn’t close the door on the Cats in his comments to the media, instead turning the conversation back to his team.
Jonathan Schuette will be by in a bit to tell you some more about the man they call Butch.
