There is another Stoops patrolling the sidelines of college football.
OSG sources have confirmed that the Kentucky Wildcats will name Florida State defensive coordinator Mark Stoops.as their new head coach.
Stoops joins brother Bob who has great success in his 14 season as Oklahoma head coach as head coaches in the family.
Of course Mike Stoops was the head coach at Arizona from 2004-2011.
Stoops is a hell of a defensive coach, he turned the Florida State defense from God-awful to awesome in his three season as the Seminoles defensive coordinator.
The Wildcats are getting a proven coordinator who may not have head coaching experience but has been seen his older brothers have success.
Mark Stoops takes over perhaps the worst program in the SEC right now. He will have his work cut out for him. The UK fan base tends to lose interest in football around mid-October once basketball season begins if the football program is bad and lately it has been.
Stoops does carry the name of college football’s newest first family (Sorry Bowden’s). With talent rich Ohio just up the road and with Stoops an Ohio native, he was born and raised in Youngstown, Stoops might be able to better tap the reservoir for UK
Stoops will coach the Seminoles in the ACC Championship Game Saturday.MJ Perino leads True Blue coverage on the hiring...
