A Staff Shake-Up In Lexington

Joker Phillips has a pair of vacancies on his coaching staff today.  Kentucky’s coach will be looking to replace secondary coach Chris Thurmond and running backs coach Larry Brinson.  Both coaches were holdovers from Rich Brooks’ final staff in Lexington.

UK officials won’t say whether the two coaches were fired.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that Phillips plans to replace Thurmond with a co-defensive coordinator to work with Steve Brown.

Football withdraws scholarship offer to Texas linebacker

Content provided by John Clay’s Sidelines.

Bleed Blue Kentucky and the Denton Record-Chronicle report that UK has withdrawn its scholarship offer to commitment Blake Terry, a middle linebacker out of Denton, Texas.

Terry committed to UK on June 22, but got a call from UK assistant Larry Brinson on Sunday night saying he was no longer being offered.

Excerpt from the Denton paper:

“I’m just a little upset,” Terry said. “If you make a commitment somewhere and they pull it basically they weren’t committed to you as much as you are to them. I know, being a good athlete, something is bound to come through. God has blessed me somehow. I have bigger things to worry about now and playing for my team right now.

“I was committed. I didn’t talk to anyone but them. I let everyone know my options were closed. I was solid. But I guess they weren’t as solid as me. I have to move on and pray about it and see what comes my way.”
