If you’re hoping to see the Kentucky Wildcats land Liam Coen, KSR’s Matt Jones has a positive update.
While Jones thought UK would have wrapped this up by now, he still believes Coen will ultimately be the hire.
I thought the Coen deal would be done by now but it obviously hasn’t happened yet.— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) December 7, 2022
I think the decision (one way or the other) will be made today. But The Rams play tomorrow night. So that might change when we find out the result
Still think it’s very likely he is here
Cats Illustrated’s Justin Rowland also indicated the belief has been it would take a bit longer to finalize the OC hire if it does turn out to be Coen.
FWIW, I have never heard that this OC search was supposed to be wrapped up soon. In fact it has always seemed to me like if it is going to be Coen, it would take a little longer...not the quick move.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) December 7, 2022
If Coen to UK is going to happen, my guess is it happens this weekend.
The offensive coordinator search is heating up for the Kentucky Wildcats football program, and could be coming down to the wire within the week.
Option number one for Mark Stoops has been rumored, and talk about, being former Wildcats offensive coordinator and current Los Angeles Rams OC Liam Coen.
Coen spearheaded the Wildcats’ revitalized offense in the 2021 season under first-year starting quarterback Will Levis along with transfer wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson, who broke the single-season receptions record in his only season in Lexington.
Coen left for Los Angeles shortly after the Citrus Bowl, but has not had much luck as Sean McVay’s right-hand-man.
Now, with both parties seeming to be interested in a reunion, will Kentucky pull it off and make the hire to rejuvenate the football fan base?
A decision could be made within the coming days, whether it’s Coen or not, so we need to know what you all think; Does UK land the Prodigal Son Liam Coen?
