Kentucky has its WR coach and a Performance Coordinator

You can cancel those plans to interview for the wide receivers coaching vacancy at Kentucky, because the position has been filled.  Kentucky hired Tommy Mainord away from Texas Tech, according to Kyle Tucker.  Mainord spent three seasons with the Red Raiders alongside Neal Brown.

Also, from Jen Smith of the Herald Leader, UK has hired a Football Performance Coordinator named Erik Korem.  Korem leaves Florida State where he was the assistant strength and conditioning coach and a speed and nutrion specialist.  Korem has worked with world class sprinters and track athletes in the past, including Tyson Gay.

    1. Don’t ever say something like that. It has nothing to do with race it has to do with who will come to UK. Plus this guy brings in yet another guy that Brown doesn’t have to explain what he wants out of a position. Look at this way it’s a guy Brown knows he can trust. A guy that along with Scott helped make TT what it was on offense.

    Supposedly though we also picked up UT corner coach Ansley. Which should complete our staff.

    #9 – Bear Bryant staff and the Blanton Collier staff which included Don Shula, Howard Schnellenberger and Chuck Knox would be 1 and 2.

    Is this the best staff in history? Why is everything the best or worst for UK fans? This staff is certainly getting the we hated the former coach bounce that Gillispie got. I remember when we lost to Gardner Webb and no one batted an eye, just blamed Tubby.
