Good morning BBN.

The Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball program is looking for a new strength and conditioning coach.

As caught by KSR’s Jack Pilgrim, UK has posted a new job opening for the S&C position, with the deadline to apply set for May 2nd. KSR has since confirmed Rob Harris’ time in Lexington has come to an end.

Harris has served as the head S&C coach at Kentucky for six years and has been with the program since the 2014-15 season. He previously was the assistant strength coach for two seasons.

With injuries piling up at an abnormal rate within the program in recent years, it’s fair to wonder if the S&C program UK has used needed a change, which is coming this offseason.

Harris has since confirmed his departure on Twitter.
