Eliot Explains the Move to Colorado

After D.J. Eliot’s move was made official by the University of Colorado, he briefly discussed the decision with Jen Smith of the Herald-Leader.

The primary reason: family.  As much as it will disgust many readers, Eliot’s wife is from the area and will now be just 20 minutes away from her parents.  With young children, it makes sense.

His relationship with Mark Stoops will change only professionally.  “He can’t get rid of me as a friend,” he said.

Eliot said he appreciated his time in Kentucky and believes the best is yet to come.

“I think they’re going to do well. I feel like we’re leaving with Kentucky headed in the right direction,” he said. “We’ve turned the corner.”

UPDATE

Eliot also issued a statement to thank the University of Kentucky.

  1. I’m not sure why it would “disgust many readers” that they want to be closer to family. Good luck to DJ, until and unless they meet us in a bowl game!

    Same here, why would this move disgust me or any BNN fan? Guy took another jod at another school. Evidently, close to his wife’s parents. It’s not like he just walked away from the U.K. program and turned his back on coach Stoops. He sort of lost his place within the coaching staff at U.K.

    Forgot something, it was a clean break away too. No mess no fuss. Then put out a very positive statement about the FB program, Stoops, administration, university, fans, and Lexington community.

    Best of luck to him, but he should have been let go already. I think if it weren’t for their friendship he would have been. The D just never did get going under him and it wasn’t until Stoops took over this year that the D started to excel. It was time for a new DC.
