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.
