Former EKU head coach on Mark Stoops’ list of potential hires

Former Eastern Kentucky head coach Dean Hood is in the mix for a spot on Mark Stoops’ staff at Kentucky, WKYT reports. That would likely be as a replacement for Andy Buh, the former outside linebackers and special teams coach.

Hood coached the Colonels for eight years up until the end of this past season when he was let go after coaching the team to a 6-5 record. He accepted a job as assistant head coach and tight ends coach at Charlotte back in December.

WKYT’s sources say Stoops was in Charlotte today to meet with Hood to discuss coming back to the Bluegrass.

    Considering how badly EKU out-coached us last season, this is probably good news.

  3. Maybe he can teach our players to fight like EKU players.

    Oh to be a fly on the wall when he and Drew Barker meet.

    If he is a good candidate and can light a fire, I am all in.
