Lexington, Ky. – Darin Hinshaw, who helped guide some of the best offenses in University of Cincinnati history, has been named Kentucky’s co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, head coach Mark Stoops has announced.
“Darin has a great offensive mind and his experience includes time in the Southeastern Conference,” Stoops said. “I’ve been impressed with how well they’ve produced at Cincinnati and how prolific they have been in throwing the football.”
Hinshaw, a former record-setting quarterback at UCF, joins the Kentucky staff after serving on the Cincinnati coaching staff since 2013. Before his time with the Bearcats, Hinshaw coached three seasons with Tennessee, including functioning as the recruiting coordinator in 2012, with Rivals.com ranking him as one of the top 10 recruiters in college football in 2011.
“This is a great opportunity to be back in the SEC and I’m really looking forward to it,” Hinshaw said. “I’ve always looked at Kentucky as a program that has the potential to be very, very good and we can put up the points and yards that will equal wins and help get us to bowl games. That’s why I’m taking this opportunity. I’m very excited to be back in the SEC and be a part of Kentucky and the Big Blue Nation.”
