After spending five years as Indiana’s head strength and conditioning coach, Mark Hill will join the Kentucky football staff as the assistant strength and conditioning coach according to Jen Smith of the Herald-Leader. Hill’s past includes stops at Oklahoma, Arizona and Minnesota.
Hill will make $200,000 a year, $4,000 less than the head strength coach, Corey Edmund. Mark Stoops mentioned some other contractual upgrades during last week’s press conference. Today we learned from UK’s Office of Legal Counsel that Derrick Ansley will make $375,000 annually through 2019 and Andy Buh will make $325,000 a year through 2018.
The new hires and offseason raises have cost UK a pretty penny — approximately a half million dollars.
