Neal Brown Leaving Texas Tech to Become Kentucky Offensive Coordinator
Pete Roussel from CoachingSearch.com reported last night on twitter,
“Sources tell me that Texas Tech offensive coordinator Neal Brown will be named offensive coordinator at Kentucky.” – @coachingsearch
Brown, 32, is considered one of the bright young minds in college football and has helped engineer the Texas Tech Offense to three consecutive Top 30 finishes in total offense (#12 in 2010, #29 in 2011 and #12 in 2012).
Brown joins the new staff under first-year head coach Mark Stoops who will try to bring Kentucky Football to prominence in the tough Southeastern Conference.
Stoops, the brother of Oklahoma Sooners Head Coach Bob Stoops and former Arizona Head Coach Mike Stoops, was the Defensive Coordinator at Florida State before accepting the top job in Lexington.
Brown leaves Texas Tech just a few days after former Head Coach Tommy Tuberville unexpectedly left Texas Tech for the same position at the University of Cincinnati.
Brown had interviewed for the Louisiana Tech Head Coaching position along with the Southern Miss opening.
Texas Tech will face Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Texas Bowl December 28th in Houston.
