Kentucky has hired Jeremy Jarmon to be assistant director of player personnel. Big development for UK football. He replaces Tommy Cook, who went to Kent State.

Love seeing such a deserving person get this position. That is a big job as far as face-time and interaction with players, and I can't think of a better guy to be influencing our young team.
Terrific seeing a program take care of its own, just like the basketball team has often done. Add that to the "how to sell UK FB" thread.
Good. One day maybe he will transition to a coaching position too.
Great move by Joker and UK.
I've been waiting on this since his retirement. Great great news.
Excellent news. Congrats to Jarmon. He'll be a damn good asset to have. Should be a helluva position coach in a couple years.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Not sure what that job entails, but having Jeremy Jarmon associated with the program again is a very good thing.
Did the NFL just not work out for him?
Excited to see him at UK!
He had an ACL injury that wasn't healing correctly, or making it rough on him to continue his career.
As long as he's not responsible for telling ou players which supplements are and are not okay!
Man, that still burns me up! That season may have gone a bit differently if we had Jarmon.
Seriously, great pick up for us. I love it when we bring former players back into the program!
This is a fantastic move for Joker and company. Seems like a win, win situation.
Lol, that's a low blow, but I know its in jest. Agreed.
Story up with quotes:
Really cool deal. I feel bad that Jeremy's playing career was cut short, but from all accounts this guy is going to be a huge success and will hopefully help the Cats big time.
if anything he can tell anyone on our team that they had better check with the Athletics Department about any supplements before they take them since he could have had a GREAT almost historic career if he would have been allowed to play his senior year. Cam Newton can play with his dad shopping him around, but JJ couldn't play because he took a supplement that he didn't know he couldn't take? That was a croc of s*** if I've ever heard one. Was a great player at UK and in the pro's, and will be great at this position and any position in the future. Jeremy Jarmon is just a winner plain and simple
Always love seeing successful past players come back...hate that he isn't playing anymore but hopefully he can relate with players and help anyway possible. Good having him and dre both on staff!

I can't express how much I absolutely LOVE this addition to the UK staff. Great hire!

Fantastic hire!!! I was hoping this would happen when I heard the news last week that he was retiring from playing the game. The good thing is, this type of position (e.g. Director or Assistant Director of Player Personnel or Player Development) is essentially an ACIW (assistant coach in waiting) type of position at most programs where the guy learns the ropes of coaching from behind the scenes, helps out in on-campus recruiting and gameday tasks, and if he continues to do a good job and appears to be a bright, young "rising star", then is eventually promoted to a position coaching position once something opens up or is taken with one of the coaches for an assistant position if they happen to leave for another school. It is a win-win for UK at this point.
The truth?!!!! You can't handle the truth!!!!
Jj needs to break out some movie lines and scare some recruits into the boat.
