Nord set to join UK staff

Former Wildcat Greg Nord is returning to his alma mater, where he is expected to coach tight ends.

The News-Gazette is reporting that Illinois coach Ron Zook confirmed Nord was leaving the Illini staff to join the Cats.

Nord replaces Steve Ortmayer, who wasn't retained by new UK coach Joker Phillips.

Nord is a Louisville native who played at Kentucky. Nord was an assistant coach at UK from 1982-89. He also was on the Louisville staff from 1995-2009.

Nord was hired in December to coach the tight ends at Illinois and also was the recruiting coordinator there.

There has been no official word from UK.
