Former UK Assistant Lamar Thomas will call Kentucky-Florida for ESPN Radio

One outspoken former Mark Stoops assistant will get the chance to speak freely about the Wildcats this Saturday when Kentucky travels to The Swamp to take on the sixth-ranked Florida Gators.

For the first time this year, Kentucky is moving off the SEC Network to ESPN for a noon kickoff, which means there will be a national broadcast of the game on ESPN Radio. If you can’t access Tom Leach’s call of the game, you can still hear play-by-play from J.P. Shadrick while Lamar Thomas provides color commentary for the four-letter network.

Thomas is best-known nationally as a two-time National Championship-winning wide receiver for The U who spent eight years catching passes in the NFL, including five with the Miami Dolphins. He’s best known around the Commonwealth as the wide receivers coach that left Louisville after successfully recruiting Lamar Jackson, then helped Kentucky beat the Heisman Trophy winner 41-38 in 2016.

Thomas coached Kentucky’s wideouts for two years before Stoops parted ways with the sometimes controversial coach. His voice has not bee silenced on Twitter. He released stirred up a ruckus in the BBN when he said this after the Wildcats lost to Georgia.

Could we hear some more Lamar Thomas Hot Takes during Saturday’s game? If things get ugly at The Swamp, the national broadcast will be must-listen radio.
