How Mark Stoops and Neal Brown First Met


UK’s Football camp begins on Monday.  New Head Coach Mark Stoops leads his first full practice.  According to rivals he brought in the University’s best recruiting class ever.

This coming week we’ll get our first look at the heralded freshmen like 4-star DE Jason Hatcher and local product Ryan Timmons. 

Timmons will be a nice toy for Offensive Coordinator Neal Brown.  Stoops calls Brown one of his most important hires.

The first time they spoke on the phone was far from ordinary, with kids screaming in the background.

Despite the noise, Stoops says Brown impressed him.  They met face to face, and Stoops hired Brown.
