Fordham is promoting current associate head coach Keith Urgo to be the program’s next head coach, according to Jon Rothstein.

So for now, Bruiser Flint is set to stay with the Kentucky Wildcats.

The Kentucky Wildcats weren’t expected to have any major staff shakeups this offseason, but it appears they could lose Bruiser Flint.

According to Adam Zagoria, Flint is interviewing to be the next head coach at Fordham, who lost head coach Kyle Neptune after he replaced Jay Wright as the head man of the Villanova Wildcats.

Flint, who just finished his second season coaching for the Wildcats, is currently the associate to the head coach, which isn’t one of the three primary assistant coaching spots.

Zagoria says that Fordham is expected to make a hire in the coming days, so perhaps Flint is about to become a head coach again.
