UK announced that Rich Scangarello has been hired as the school’s new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
The Kentucky Wildcats have found their new offensive coordinator, and it’s a name that was completely off the radar.
“The University of Kentucky is hiring 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello as its new offensive coordinator, per sources,” Pelissero wrote on Twitter. “A widely respected QB developer, Scangarello replaces Liam Coen, who took the Rams OC job and left behind the zone scheme Scangarello knows well.”
Scangarello was last in the college ranks as the OC and QBs coach at Wagner in 2016. He had other OC stints at Northern Arizona, UC Davis, and Carleton.
This is the second 49ers assistant Kentucky will hire this offseason after landing Zach Yenser to be the program’s next offensive line coach. Having Yenser and Scangarello coming in after coaching on the same staff together should make life much easier for Kentucky to break in revamped offensive line and a new offensive play-caller.

First, Zach Yenser for UK’s O-line. Now, it looks like the former 49ers QB coach will be UK’s pick for offensive coordinator https://t.co/zB30kcEMGd
