Vince Marrow will remain at Kentucky after considering Youngstown State

The Big Dog is staying in the Bluegrass.

Since Bo Pelini created a head coaching vacancy at Youngstown State on Monday, speculation has swirled around Vince Marrow. With aspirations to one day enter the head coaching ranks, many feared he would return to his hometown school to resurrect the traditional FCS powerhouse.

After meeting with Youngstown State officials Friday afternoon, Marrow said on Twitter that his job at Kentucky is not yet complete.

Marrow’s return has immediate implications on the recruiting trail. Michael Drennen, a four-star all-purpose back from Dublin, Oh., is set to choose between USC and Kentucky on National Signing Day (Wednesday, Feb. 5). With Marrow in the picture, Kentucky is that much closer to landing an athlete billed as “the next Lynn Bowden.”

As for the big picture impact of Marrow’s return, he’ll get to see the fruits of his recruiting labors on the field over the next two seasons. There’s no doubt other head coaching opportunities will arise, especially if the promises he made shortly after arriving on campus of ten-win seasons and SEC Championships come true.

The Big Dog is here to stay. Celebrate accordingly.

      Yep. When you say nice things and throw in a “that said” it normally means bad news. Except with this type of announcement these days.

    I saw some people saying if it was Toledo he would probably go because he played college ball there. True but he only played one year of college football at Toledo. He played two years of college basketball at Youngstown State before he transferred to Toledo. This did worry me but so thankful he decided to stay and get the job finished here
