UK football coach expects offseason coaching changes

Stoops is 12-24 in three years at UK

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 16, 2015) — Coming off a third straight losing season, University of Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops said today during a Kentucky Sports Radio interview that there could be some offseason coaching changes for the Wildcats.

With a chance to become bowl eligible in the final game, at home against Louisville, UK blew a 24-7 halftime lead, getting outscored 31-0 in the second half to fall 38-24.

When asked about potential coaching changes Stoops said: “I think there will be some changes… It’s fair to say there will be something. There’s just a lot of things that go into that. You’re affecting a lot of people. You’re affecting them, their families. You’re affecting their future. I’m just not in a position right now, even legally, to talk about those changes.”
