Another UK website has a story this morning that Kenny Payne, the former Louisville player and Oregon assistant had been hired by UK to be an Assistant Coach. As of today, Payne is not a member of the Kentucky staff. As of this time, there isnt an opening on the staff which Payne could take and thus no hiring has taken place, regardless of the report.
However as we said a couple of months back, if an opening does come up, Payne likely would be the hire. He has a close relationship with Calipari and is one of the best recruiters in the land. There is the possibility that an opening could occur very soon, but that isnt certain and the report by the other site is premature.
Carry on with your day and listening to the podcast….
