During his press conference this afternoon, Mark Stoops was asked about the rumors that he was one of the candidates for the Michigan job, and told reporters that although he was flattered, he’s got plenty to do at Kentucky, thank you very much. “You know, I’m unsure how to answer that. I mean, I wasn’t concerned at all because I knew what I was doing here and what I wanted to do and will continue to do,” Stoops said, joking that he’s had “very little experience” with coaching rumors so far.
“You know, I made some pretty strong statements when I was awarded that contract extension, and I don’t say those things lightly,” Stoops added. “I’m very committed. I’m very appreciative, and I’m very loyal. I’ve said those things before, and everybody has been so good to me and what we’re doing here and this whole program and very committed. I really am excited about continuing to build this program and really move it forward.”
We’re just getting started, bro.
