Brad White will be UK’s Next Defensive Coordinator

Kentucky will have a familiar face calling the defense next fall.  Sources tell KSR Brad White will be the Cats’ next defensive coordinator.

White will be Mark Stoops’ third defensive coordinator in seven seasons.  He replaces Matt House, who departed after three seasons in Lexington to become the Kansas City Chiefs linebackers coach.

Last year was White’s first in Lexington.  In that short time as UK’s outside linebackers coach, he helped transform Josh Allen into a record-breaking National Defensive Player of the Year.  He is expected to continue coaching that position.  Prior to joining Stoops’ staff, White spent six seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

White will receive help from Jon Sumrall.  The former UK linebacker coached inside linebackers at Ole Miss last season and has an excellent reputation as a recruiter.

Mark Stoops’ defense will be led by a rising star in the coaching industry, and he has new protege to help him recruit.  A win-win for Kentucky’s defense.

    I hope I don’t regret saying this but I think this is great news. 2 young up and coming coaches who can each reasonably hope to be promoted within the industry in the 2-3 years is a great way to hire.

    Should have hired Eddie Gran to be DC. Missed an opportunity there.
