LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Joker Phillips is shaking
up his staff.
The school announced Tuesday it has released running backs coach
Larry Brinson and Chris Thurmond effective immediately.
Brinson spent the last four seasons with the Wildcats, helping
the program produce 1,000-yard rusher Rafael Little and second-team
All-SEC selection Derrick Locke last season.
Thurmond spent the last two years at Kentucky, coaching
second-team All-American Trevard Lindley in 2008.
Spokesman Tony Neely said the search for their replacements will
begin immediately, with one of the new hires serving as
co-defensive coordinator with Steve Brown.
The Wildcats (6-6) will play Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl
in Birmingham, Ala., on Jan. 8.
