It’s been rumored for a while, but this afternoon a Kentucky player “confirmed” via Twitter than Florida State defensive ends coach DJ Eliot will be taking over as UK’s defensive coordinator. Linebacker Bud Dupree posted this afternoon that the hire is official.
Eliot coached with new Wildcats coach Mark Stoops at Florida State the past three seasons.
There are still rumors that Texas Tech offensive coordinator Neal Brown is being pursued to coordinate UK’s offense, but his name is also being kicked around in connection with some head coaching vacancies.
We await and official confirmation on the Eliot news.
