It looks like UK deputy athletics director DeWayne Peevy is poised to finally become an full-fledged AD.
According to DePaul reporter Lawrence Kreymer, the school has offered Peevy their AD job and is now working to finalize a deal.

The other reported finalist for the job is Northwestern deputy athletics director Mike Polisky.
If Peevy were to leave, UK would be losing a key member of their athletics department. He’s been the school’s deputy athletics director for the last six years and has been with the school since 2008.
Though it would be a big loss for UK, it’s time for Peevy to get his turn to run an athletics department. It could also help groom him as a potential replacement for current UK AD Mitch Barnhart whenever he decides to retire.
