Report: Kentucky DB coach is candidate to join Kirby Smart at UGA
The coaching carousel continues.
Tuesday night, news broke that Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is being handed the reins of the UGA program. Now, Smart is tasked with deciding who will join him in Athens, Ga. — and according to one report, a Kentucky assistant could be high on his radar.
FootballScoop is reporting that Wildcats defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley might leave for the Bulldogs, which would be a big loss for Mark Stoops.
Ansley coached cornerbacks for two seasons at Kentucky before taking over responsibilities for the entire secondary this year. He also has experience at big-name programs, spending one season with the Vols after winning a national title in 2010 as a defensive graduate assistant coach for the Crimson Tide.
