Interesting rumblings from our friends at 247 Sports. According to Ryan Bartow, former Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck has emerged as a frontrunner for the UK OC opening. I profiled Beck on Monday, but in short, he favors a up-tempo rushing attack utilizing two sprinters, two bruisers and two fullbacks. He also grew up with Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow in Youngstown, Ohio and interviewed for the head coaching job at Kansas earlier this week.
If Stoops does hire Beck, it will de a drastic change for the currently pass-happy UK offense. This season, Nebraska ran 64% rushing plays and only 36% passing plays. Sounds like something Damien Harris might like to hear?
