Rich Brooks steps down as Head Coach

+

(HT @ TeamSpeedKills) Though he never was able to get rid of the big mean monster in the basement (translation: us) I have to tip my hat to a guy who stuck around at Kentucky and did a might fine job. Brooks ended his career at Kentucky with a loss to Clemson, but he'll be remembered for so much more, none moreso than the fact that he got to retire at Kentucky after a bowl game. "When he first arrived in 2003, the Wildcats were hindered by NCAA probation that limited scholarships to 70 (maximum is 85). The team finished 4-8. The program won the Music City Bowl in 2006 and ’07 and the 2008 Liberty Bowl. It finished with a winning record in each of Brooks final four seasons. The highlight of his tenure was a triple-overtime 43-37 upset of top-ranked Louisiana State in October 2007."
