Saw this today. Huge pickup for UK. Welcome to the Big Blue Nation, Edrick!
Edrick Floreal was named head coach of Kentucky track and field on Monday. Bit by bit, Kentucky is turning into the kind of head coaching destination Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart envisioned it could be a decade ago.On Monday, UK...
Stanford is always in the national discussion for pretty much every sport except for football and men's basketball. And lately football has been very good, thank you mr. Luck.
So this is a great pickup for UK. Has Mitch written all over it.

Some people don't give Mitch enough credit. In a day and age where coaches are on a short leash, Mitch has been patient and it has paid off. Henderson, Brooks, Mitchell. Hopefully Joker is next.
Sounds like a great hire with a proven track record of personal success. Good job, Mitch!
Any relation to Derek Foreal?
