UK Hoops adds new, former assistant


It did not take Matthew Mitchell very long to fill one of the vacancies on his staff. Jen Smith of the Herald-Leader is reporting Kyra Elzy is set to return to the Kentucky sideline, where she worked under Mitchell from 2008-12. Elzy left UK to coach at Tennessee, her alma mater, but parted ways with the Vols program earlier this month.

Elzy is also a former standout at Oldham County High School in Kentucky. She was a runner-up for Kentucky’s Miss Basketball in 1996 and is set to be inducted into the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame this summer.

Welcome home.

    Good news, hopefully. Maybe her first order of business will be to get those recruits back and we can all calm down.
