Guy Morriss will be Back in Lexington

A former Kentucky football coach is coming home to coach, but not at his old school.  According to Alan Cutler, Guy Mo will spend the 2015 football season coaching the offensive line at Lexington Christian Academy.  Morriss coached the offensive line at Warren Central in Bowling Green last year.

There are mixed opinions about the man who ride a motorcycle into Commonwealth Stadium.  Taking over the program in the midst of probation fallout, the Cats could only muster two wins in his first season.  They turned it around quickly in year two thanks to the likes of Jared Lorenzen, Derek Abney, and SEC Offensive POY Artose Pinner.  Banned from the postseason, they still managed seven wins, winning three SEC games after starting the season with a win at Louisville (we can forget about that ALMOST win against LSU).  Unfortunately he got the chance to go home and coach at Baylor, leaving shortly after the successful season, putting a bad taste in the mouths of many.

As he returns to Lex, let’s remember the good times with Go Mo with some highlights from a beat down win over UTEP, with Rob Bromley on the play-by-play.

      Installed a winning culture?? He averaged 3 wins a year in 5 yrs of coaching there!!! I guess that’s a winning culture if you’re used to rooting for UK though…

    Seriously….Guy is in high school….coaching the line?? Wow. As a gesture of good will, Mitch and Coach Stoops SHOULD hire him in some role if he is willing….which clearly he still has that desire to coach. I mean…surely to goodness, he could be the assistant O-line coach at UK…making as much if not substantially more than a high school gig. Wow. Just wow.

    Yea, I bet Mitch is chomping at the bit to give guy a payday, and throw him back in the mix

    I actually think given our situation at the time, he did a good job while he was here.

    Guy got a 50% pay raise by going to Baylor. He was at, or near, the bottom of SEC salaries for football coached. He had assembled an excellent football staff at the time of his departure from UK.

    Kentucky State had the best offensive line it’s ever had the year Guy was there. He should’ve taken the Boyle County job years back
