Former Kentucky Wildcats Football coach Guy Morriss passed away this week at the age of 71.
Morriss began his tenure in 1997 as assistant head coach and offensive line coach under Hal Mumme, and then after Mumme’s resignation, took over head coaching duties.
For this writer who is 27 years old, those Kentucky teams under Morriss are among my earliest fond memories of Kentucky Football with guys like Jared Lorenzen, Artose Pinner, Derek Abney, Antonio Hall, Dewayne Robertson, and Sweet Pea Burns leading the Wildcats.
That 2002 group is among my favorites in Kentucky history as a group that was fun to watch and being a small child at the time, provided some of my first very memorable moments of Kentucky Football.
After Morriss left for a few years, it was really good to see him come back to the commonwealth where he coached at Warren Central High School and Lexington Christian Academy.
Morriss will most certainly be missed, and we send our condolences to the Morriss family.

Never gets old.
The freshman could be called on early and often.
JJ Weaver and Jacquez Jones certainly feel like they have something to prove.
Going to be a raucous crowd in Gainesville.
A split that was a long time coming.
Another mock draft has Levis as one of the first off the board.
NFL fans, rejoice!
Interesting read about this group.
