The Kentucky Wildcats have had a series of coaching changes so far this offseason but there is another change coming to the Kentucky program.
Derek Terry of The Cats Pause reported that Scott Woodward is joining the coaching staff as an offensive quality control assistant.

Woodward’s connection to Kentucky is through new offensive coordinator Liam Coen, as Woodward was Coen’s backup QB for four seasons at UMass. Woodward was also as assistant there from 2015-18.
During the last two seasons, Woodward has been a quality control assistant at Pittsburgh.
This position does not allow Woodward to serve as an on-field coach. His role will be to explore ideas with Coen when creating game plans and scouting opponents. His presence will go a long way to helping Coen adjust to his new role as a play caller in the SEC.
While we won’t see Woodward doing on-field coaching, his impact will come behind the scenes is all of the pregame preparation.
