Mark Stoops Is Kentucky's New Football Coach

Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE

In news first reported by Kentucky Sports Radio, Mark Stoops has been hired as the new head football coach at Lexington Basketball Academy.

It's a surprisingly good hire by Mitch Barnhart, as Stoops has done a wonderful job with the defense at Florida State and has the name recognition to be an effective recruiter for the Wildcats. His challenge will be ratcheted up a notch at UK, however, as he takes over a program that hasn't finished above .500 in its conference since 1977.

Congrats to Coach Stoops on landing the part of Robin in Lexington.
