A statement from Maggard’s family on decision to resign

Freddie Maggard stepped down from his position as director of player development with the UK football program after only one year on the job.

On Monday, Maggard’s wife, Jennifer Maggard, gave a statement to KSR, explaining the decision to move on:

“This was a personal decision that was made for health reasons and the betterment of our family. We know God is in control and has a plan for us. We would like to thank Mr. Barnhart, Coach Stoops and the UK family for their support in this decision. We look forward to cheering the Cats on to victory this year! Go Cats!!”

Freddie is a huge friend of KSR and a former contributor to our website and podcasts, and we wish him nothing but the best in whatever life has in store for him next.

    I met Freddie on a tour of the new facility. I’m not a donor, don’t have season tickets, get to maybe one game a year. He was the friendliest guy. All the coaches and players I met were super nice. You would have thought I just wrote UK a check for a million dollars. Big loss for the program, but I wish him nothing but the best. Great guy.

    Always enjoyed his insight— maybe he can be a guest writer for KSR from time to time.
    Good luck and good health to you Freddie.
