Vince Marrow signing extension with Kentucky Football, per report

The Cats are keeping Marrow.

UK Athletics

It looks like Vince Marrow won’t be leaving the Kentucky Wildcats anytime soon.

According to KSR, Marrow and the school have agreed to a three-year contract extension that will keep him in Lexington as the recruiting coordinator through 2020.

Marrow has become easily the most important assistant coach on the staff as his recruiting impact is a big reason why Kentucky Football is on the rise. His impact in the state of Ohio has been integral in UK assembling top 25-35 classes ever since Stoops arrived in 2012.

Marrow also serves as the team’s tight ends coach, but there’s no question his importance lies on the recruiting trail. The Cats’ 2017 recruiting class was ranked No. 29 overall by 247 Sports. That included six recruits from the state of Ohio. Kentucky’s current 2018 class has two commits from Ohio and is ranked No. 19 overall.

That kind of impact is why schools like Michigan have come after him in recent years, but Kentucky has been able to hold them off thus far. It looks like they’ll do so again this year.
