LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Strictly by coincidence, Mark Stoops has hired a Youngstown guy to take over as Kentucky’s DB’s coach.
Steve Clinkscale has made his way down from Cincinnati to Lexington and met with the local media today.
New UK head coach of the offense, Eddie Gran, and QB man Darin Hinshaw had strong recommendations for their fellow UC colleague.
On the flip side, Clinkscale said he knew of Stoops and his philosophy…but then again, it’s kind of hard not to with that last name in Youngstown.
Hear Stoops’ take on Clinkscale joining the staff and what the one-time DC brings to the table in the video.
You’ll also hear from Clinkscale on why he took the job.
