Prepare for Passes to the Tight End: Vince Marrow has the Keys to Kentucky’s Offense

The Kentucky football team has returned to the practice fields and there’s a new sheriff calling the shots on offense, Vince Marrow.

Mark Stoops has hired a new offensive coordinator to replace Eddie Gran, Rams assistant quarterbacks coach Liam Coen, but UK will not bring in the new staff before the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl. For the next two weeks, Marrow is running the show.

“I’m going to lean on the guys we have,” Stoops said Sunday night, “Coach Bo (wide receivers coach Jovon Bouknight)  and Coach Marrow. He’s kind of handling the offense right now. We’ll activate some of our analysts. Mark Perry has all of the qualifications and he does a great job. Mark will be coaching the quarterbacks, handling that and helping with game-planning. Josh Estes-Waugh will be activated and on the field coaching. He’s been with us for awhile and does quite a bit of our analytics and our self-scout and all of those things.

“My man Coach Marrow will be out there at the hand of the controllers, but I’m going to have to be in that room a little bit more than I normally am.”

So what exactly does a Vince Marrow offense look like? Through just a few practices, not much has changed.

“Honestly, it’s pretty much the same,” said defensive end Josh Paschal. “I mean, we’ve only practiced a couple of times, so they haven’t thrown something really crazy at us yet, but I’m pretty sure they will. I know Coach Marrow is going to try to make a fool of us in practice one time.”

The BBN is anticipating more targets to the talented tight ends. Even though two of Kentucky’s top three pass-catchers are tight ends, according to Kentucky fans there is no such thing as “too many passes to the tight end.”

“He’s been doing a lot of yelling. I think he’s enjoyed it. He’s bringing a lot of energy and passion to practice. He’s making it fun. He likes having fun and he likes working hard. I think he’s combined those two things. You are seeing a couple more tight end passes lately, that’s for sure,” said senior offensive guard Luke Fortner.

“It’s going to be fun to watch and I think Coach Marrow’s going to do a great job.”

      Chris gettelwhatever….why is KSR where you all come to always have a smart a$$ comment? Is it because your wife beats you every night and this is where you show how manly you are.
      Personally I think it’s very important we win this bowl game. We had a bad year and our recruiting isn’t good right now. A loss keeps the slide going. So no I’m not relaxing because it’s important for the program to get a win.
