Mark Stoops is reportedly going to continue his offseason raid of the Cincinnati coaching staff.
Stoops is preparing to add Cincinnati defensive coordinator Steve Clinkscale to his staff at Kentucky as defensive backs coach, according to a report by Josh Edwards of 247Sports. Clinkscale would replace Derrick Ansley, who left for Alabama earlier this month.
Clinkscale spent the last three years at Cincinnati. He was the defensive backs coach the past three seasons, but was promoted in January to defensive coordinator. He moved to Cincinnati after one year at Illinois and three years at Toledo.
He would be the third coach to leave Cincinnati this offseason and join Kentucky. Stoops tabbed Eddie Gran to be his assistant head coach for offense and running backs coach and Darin Hinshaw to coach the quarterbacks in late December after Shannon Dawson was fired and Chad Scott left for North Carolina.
