REPORT: UK expected to hire North Texas defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc

Cfxt8XwUEAAAsLc

You’re looking at North Texas defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc, who, according to FootballScoop.com, is expected to join Kentucky “in a similar capacity.” LeBlanc will likely fill the void left by former defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh, who left the program to be the co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Maryland earlier this week.

LeBlanc has been with North Texas for one season, prior to which he coached at Southern Miss, Wyoming, LSU, and Pearl River Community College.

2016 North Texas Defensive Line
2015 Pearl River CC Defensive Coordinator
2013-14 Southern Miss Defensive Line
2012 Wyoming Defensive Line
2008-11 LSU Asst. Strength and Conditioning Coach
2006-07 Missouri State Defensive Line
2005 Arkansas Tech Defensive Line
2001-04 Henderson State Defensive Line
2000 LSU Defensive Graduate Assistant/Defensive Line

I’m not positive, but I’m guessing he has no relation to “Friends” star Matt LeBlanc.

    Dude sure does move around a lot. I don’t see him being here more than a couple years max.

    Resume?!?!? He will be doing the same job he has been doing for the past 10 years. You think we were gonna get someone from Bama?

    Who? Why didn’t Stoops go after Gruden? I thought Bill Cowher was interested? And you can’t tell me Bear Bryant is doing ANYTHING these days… unbelievable.

    I know when you’re coaching at North Texas state it means you can’t get on anywhere else. This is the best we can do? What about Tracy Rocker?.., hear he lookin…smh…

      I would assume he’d be the Defensive Line coach, you know, like the article states?

      Yeah..Sorry, I meant in addition to his duties as DLine coach..I see that they will hire Dean Hood as STC

    It’s fairly clear that Stoops has hired a bunch of “Yes Men” on defense and he’s letting Gran handle the “O”..

    I like this hire. Every where he has been, he has improved D-line play immediately and put guys in the NFL, like Khyri Thornton. He has a footprint in the JuCo system and the deep south; not bad for recruiting. His resume is very similar to Brumbaugh, who also was an assistant strength/conditioning coach at LSU.

      Look at you with all your fancy ‘research’ and ‘facts’…be careful here… commenter’s may not like that.

      I didn’t know we were supposed to do research or have facts. Well this changes everything.
