There weren’t many leftovers from the 2020 offensive coaching staff, but Jovon Bouknight is back in Lexington, Ky. for his second season coaching the wide receivers. The record-breaking wideout at Wyoming recorded 3,626 receiving yards 29 touchdowns while playing for the Cowboys from 2002-05.
After Kentucky had the worst passing offense in the SEC last season, things are looking up for Bouknight and his unit. The Wildcats got great news when super senior Josh Ali returned and Nebraska transfer Wan’Dale Robinson enrolled for spring practice. Add that in with some big-time recruiting wins in the class of 2021, and there is some positive buzz surrounding Bouknight’s unit.
The former Utah State graduate assistant got his first full-time with the Aggies in 2010 and stayed with the program until 2018. After initially following Matt Wells to Texas Tech, Bouknight would leave for a one-year stint at Oregon in 2019. Now Bouknight is entering his second year in the SEC and is looking to make an impact for the Kentucky football program.
Kentucky peeled back the curtain this week and showed just what Bouknight brings to the table. This is a position coach that really hammers home the fundamentals and is currently dealing with a ton of young wideouts. This is a group that is growing and the second-year assistant is leading the way during the offensive transition.
Watch him work.
