UK has confirmed that two assistant coaches have been fired.
Defensive backs coach Chris Thurmond and running backs coach Larry Brinson will not be back with UK football.
Thurmond is in his third season with the Cats.
Brinson, a former player in the National Football League, is in his fourth season at UK.
UK also has confirmed that a new assistant coach would be hired within the week. That coach will become the co-defensive coordinator.
Steve Brown was UK's defensive backs coach, before being promoted by then-coach Rich Brooks and is in his fourth season as the Wildcats' defensive coordinator.
