Kentucky wide receivers coach Jovon Bouknight’s court case finally settled Monday morning.

Bouknight pleaded guilty to two charges, as he was arrested on May 8th in Kenton County for driving at least 26 miles per hour over the speed limit and possession of an open alcoholic beverage in his vehicle. ABC36 obtained some reports that stated Bouknight’s DUI charge has been dismissed for refusing to submit to a sobriety test. Even though this charge was dismissed, his license will still be suspended the normal length of time.

Going into his second season in the program, Bouknight has served a suspension without pay, but he was seen back on the field in June. He is now back on field helping the receiver room learn this new offense and prepare for the opener on September 4th against Louisiana Monroe.

Bouknight is entering the last season on his contract, and his future after this season is still one that is in question. Bouknight is the third wide receivers coach in the last four seasons for the program.
