LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot has left the program for Colorado, a source confirmed to SEC Country on Wednesday.
Eliot had been with Mark Stoops throughout his tenure in Lexington. The two had worked together at Florida State before Stoops was hired at Kentucky.
For context on the move, Stoops took over defensive play calling duties in Week 3 after Kentucky surrendered 89 points in its first two games.
It’s unclear what role Eliot has accepted at Colorado.
A source tells SEC Country that there is “no hurry” to replace him as the coaching staff is focused on recruiting. There is not a list of frontrunners for the job.
