If he were not coming we would have gone another direction by now.
And we wouldnt be hiring other offensive coaches before the coordinator.
Yeah, thats is the one thing that makes me think this has to be a done deal. I'm sure most OC's want to hire their own position coaches, and have say over who is hired when it comes to that side of the ball.
Brown has indeed been offered a HC position but there is a time limit involved and that is coming up soon. If he doesnt meet that time limit or turns the job down then the Cats will have a new OC and that would be announced very soon. The Texas Tech job Ive not heard if he has been contacted about as of late last night but with Tuberville leaving so suddenly it may take a couple of days for them to formulate a list. Im not surprised that Tuberville left TT when and the way he did because it has been said he wanted out of that situation desperatley.
So what job has he been offered?
I said this in another thread but I really think you are posting incorrect information. If he had been offered a position, there would be no decision to make & UK would be moving on. Based on where I'm getting my info, I can say that I'm 100% sure he hadn't been offered a HC job as of earlier this morning.

Yeah sleepy, I think you may be getting some bad info.

Well like Ive said before it just what Ive been told and take it for what its worth and if you doubt this info, fine dont believe it and I think you just did. I make no guarantees on the info I get and was very hesitant about putting this on this site considering the outcome of the info I reported about who was getting the HC job here at UK. But I dont put false info out there knowing its false and being accused of doing so is offensive. I dont lie, but I did report something that I was told by people I trust that didnt turn out to be accurate in the end. I am not doubting the validity of your source or would I ever because Im sure you believe in the trustworthiness of that source and thats exactly what I am doing.
With all due respect, your sources arent well connected. They aren't "sources" if they aren't accurate and connected.
It's not uncommon for the coordinator to not be involved with hires. You frequently see coordinators get hired/move on without bringing any staff with them. I'm sure there would be a preference to have asst's that the OC is familiar with, but they have to fit the overall strategy Stoops has in mind for the staff. If you can pick up a guy like Hinshaw, you do it. So I don't read any meaning into that in relation to Brown.
You could be right and like Ive said before I make no guarantees on this info and only am repeating what I have been told nothing more. I believe Brown will be our OC and will probably will be announced tommorow but I wonder why they are waiting till Monday to announce and I know there are contracts and other reasons why it may be Monday rather than this weekend but after all there have been people on this site that have reported the deal is done and everything settled including the paperwork. I really dont care whether the info I put on this site turns out to be correct or incorrect as long as we get Brown as our OC. GO CATS

Sources tell me that Texas Tech offensive coordinator Neal
Brown will be named offensive coordinator at Kentucky.
True enough but 1 of the guys works for the ADs office and thats pretty close to being as close to the horses mouth as you can get. In the end in the MacIntyre thing the info didnt turn out to be completely accurate but things moved so quickly in that situation that 'yes or no" can happen in mere minutes or hours which is what happened. I reported what turned out in the end to be inaccurate but when I was given the info it was to my knowledge the facts. Either way we got a good coach and good to great things are on the horizon and in that Im 100% sure.
