Rich Scangarello may be out, but he’s not leaving empty-handed.
According to sports reporter Steve Berkowitz, Scangarello is due a buyout of $2.625 million, though it could be lessened by offset language if he gets another job soon.

Rich Scangarello is out.
While there was certainly a lot of blame to go around for the underwhelming season UK just had when preseason expectations were at an all-time high, Scangarello’s offense was easily the biggest culprit. His insistence on trying to force UK’s personnel to adjust to his offense instead of adjusting his offense to UK’s personnel will ultimately be what his downfall was.
With just a bowl game left to play, here is where Kentucky’s offense ranks in the major offensive categories.
- 88th in passing offense.
- 109th in rushing offense
- 107th in total offense.
- 105th in scoring offense.
- 89th in 3rd-down conversions.
- 106th in red-zone offense.
- 125th in sacks allowed.
Not great Bob.
It is unclear who will be Kentucky’s offensive coordinator during the bowl game, or who the early candidates for Scangarello’s replacement are for head coach Mark Stoops.
It’s not the great look that Kentucky will be on its four offensive coordinator in four years, but give Stoops credit for not taking the conservative route and standing pat.
If nothing else, thank goodness we don’t have to think about Scang’s offense for the next nine months while waiting for the 2023 college football season.
