Marrow has done an outstanding job as Kentucky’s top recruiter, as he’s helped land prospects that became program legends in Lexington. As a result, the team has reached four straight bowl games and is in the conversation to win the SEC East in 2020.
While Marrow already turned down the head coaching position at his hometown school of Youngstown State, Michigan State is reportedly set to offer him a contract that would make him one of the highest-paid non-coordinator assistants in the nation.
This all comes after Michigan State hired Colorado head coach and Marrow’s long time friend Mel Tucker to replace the newly retired Mark Dantonio.
However. KSR’s Matt Jones is reporting that Kentucky has issued a counteroffer that is very close to what Michigan State is offering.
Sources tell KSR that UK has returned with a counteroffer to Vince Marrow that is essentially equivalent to the Michigan St offer— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) February 13, 2020
Now it’s just about what he wants to do
The Spartans were reportedly offering Marrow a contract that will pay him close to $1 million annually, and I think it’s safe to say that Marrow has that kind of value to Kentucky.
Can Mark Stoops, Mitch Barnhart and company convince Marrow to stay at Kentucky? Or will he head north for East Lansing?
