UK makes Marrow and Scott’s hirings official

It’s official: UK has announced the hirings of Vince Marrow and Chad Scott. Marrow will be the Tight Ends Coach and Scott is listed as an Assistant Coach, likely in charge of the running backs.

Here are Mark Stoops’ comments on the two:

“I’m very excited that Coach Marrow has joined our staff,” Stoops said. “His diverse experiences as a coach and NFL player will be invaluable to our players and our program. He also is a great recruiter, especially with his outstanding connections in Ohio.”

“I’m excited to have Chad join our staff,” Stoops said. “He has had tremendous success coaching in this system and his familiarity with Coach Brown, along with his experience with the Kentucky program, will help our transition with the team. He also is known as an outstanding recruiter and I’m confident he will help us in that area as well.”

Marrow on joining the Kentucky staff:

“I’ve known Mark Stoops for a lot of years and this is a great opportunity to come here and work with him,” Marrow said. “I’m excited to be here and looking forward to the new era of Kentucky football.

“I also want to Coach Bo Pelini for giving me the opportunity to work at Nebraska and all I learned from him on and off the field. My family enjoyed our two years in Lincoln and we wish everyone there the best.”

Scott on coming back to Kentucky:

“I’m excited for the opportunity to work with Coach Stoops, as I love the vision he has for Kentucky,” Scott said. “I’m also excited to continue working with Neal Brown. We’ve had a great relationship coaching together the past six years and we’re very eager to bring success to the Kentucky program.

“Kentucky is a special place to me and my family. It’s an honor to return to the school where I began my college career and is my wife’s alma mater.”

Offensive Coordinator Neal Brown on having his former colleague on the staff:

“Chad is a very detail-oriented coach and his players have been very productive at Troy and Texas Tech. His familiarity with the system is a great asset,” Brown said. “Chad is also a phenomenal recruiter. He does a great job building relationships with student-athletes, families and coaches.”

    I was wondering if both of Marrow’s Moobs were also offered jobs or if they’ll be looking elsewhere for work?

    This might be a dumb or already answered question, but does anyone know what the status of Andre Woodson is? Will he be back to coach at UK this upcoming season?

    Woodson conducted an in-home visit with commit Jacob Hyde on Tuesday night so I imagine he’ll be retained in some fashion.

    Glad to hear that about Woodson. If not for Mike Martz he would be in the NFL still. Woodson threw the best looking pass I’ve seen but a UK QB. With him being a Graduate assistant he probably isn’t being payed very much so why not keep him around.
    Does anybody know if Chuck Smith has gotten a job yet? He was the only full time coach I thought should have been retained. The LB have been the only bright spot the last couple of years. UK actually put several good linebackers into the league under Coach Smiths watch. Still can’t fault Stoops for cleaning house after a 2 win season.

    Martz absolutely hosed woodson. What a great idea-lets change your throwing motion right before the pro scouts watch you.

    I think old Marrow is regretting that Moob photo right now. Sloppy.
