Amani Gilmore will transfer to North Texas



Amani Gilmore is trading in his Kentucky blue for Mean Green.

The former Wildcat quarterback announced he will suit up for North Texas this fall. Located in Denton, TX, just north of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, Gilmore will be much closer to his hometown of Hammond, LA.


Gilmore is the third person in the North Texas program with a Kentucky connection. Former staffer Luke Walerius serves as the chief of staff and former UK wide receivers coach Tommy Mainord is the associate head coach and co-offensive coordinator.

Members of Conference-USA, in 2019 they finished just 4-8 following the departure of offensive coordinator Graham Harrell, now a star play-caller at USC.

    This is not being critical of Gilmore, or any player that’s transferred from UK, but when these kids don’t end up at school bigger than the UK program, I don’t look at it as much of a loss.

    Good program in a solid G5 conference. NT typically make a bowl game. Hope he does well!

    Would’ve love for AG to stay, but the depth in front of him and behind with Allen and Sheron, he wasn’t going to get much of a shot. Wish him the best at NT. Usually a good program in their conf. Go take the starting job AG and make it to the league! I think Scalzo could be next QB to transfer

    Our coaches don’t give back ups much of a chance. After way Gunner and Clark were treated, I’m sure anyone who isn’t the guy is skeptical if he will ever play.

      The only person whose number Gunner could hit was the turf’s. Will have to see how Clark does at Vandy but in JUCO he was only completing 52% of his passes and never rushed for positive yards.

      Yeah. Except that time with 19 seconds left in the first half when we were behind 20-14 against Central Michigan and the coaches pulled Wilson after he had too many turnovers when Hoak hit David Bouvier with a perfect strike for a touchdown and got hammered by a blitzing LB a split second after he let it go.

      I guess that LB scared him to death because he was ruined after that. Actually the only reason he did that was because the defense had to adjust to a new qb and as soon as they did his career at UK was over. Same reason he sucked in other games, coaches knew exactly how to defend him.
