Following the tragic loss of John Schlarman, it appears the Kentucky Wildcats have decided who will now coach the offensive line, at least for the rest of the 2020 season.
According to KSR’s Matt Jones, former Boston College Eagles head coach Jeff Jagodzinski is joining UK’s staff to help coach the o-line for the rest of the year.
Jagodzinski, now 57 years old, brings a wealth of coaching experience to Lexington. His only collegiate head-coaching job was from 2007-08 at Boston College. But he’s had numerous coaching stints in high school, college, the NFL. He was even the head coach of the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks in 2010.
Most recently, Jagodzinski served as the offensive coordinator and o-line coach of the XFL’s Dallas Renegades before the league folded earlier this year. He’s got previous stints as an o-line coach for Georgia State, Boston College, East Carolina, Northern Illinois, and the Atlanta Falcons. He was also the offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers for a season each.
