Good morning BBN!

With spring practice coming to a close, it is officially talking season across the college football landscape as we approach the summer.

One of those talking points is Head Coach rankings across the sport, and we have one of our first of the summer from Max Chadwick of Pro Football Focus.

According to his top-25 rankings, Kentucky HC, Mark Stoops, comes in at No. 18.

In the SEC, Stoops comes in as the 7th best coach in the conference according to Chadwick, behind Nick Saban (No. 1), Kirby Smart (No. 2), Brian Kelly (No. 6), Josh Heupel (No. 11), Lane Kiffin (No. 13), and Jimbo Fisher (No. 17).

Stoops continues to impress across the college football landscape. After a couple 10-win seasons, and continuing to put together impressive recruiting classes, his reputation only continues to grow. With another impressive roster for the 2023-24 season, Stoops will be looking to push to add another impressive campaign in Lexington to his resume.
