Local fans share their reaction on UK hiring Mark Stoops

Some say he has what it takes to build a winning program.

Florida State Defensive Coordinator Mark Stoops is the new Head Coach for the University of Kentucky football team.

The announcement comes just days after the Cats finished a disappointing season under fired Head Coach Joker Phillips.

After three consecutive losing seasons, many felt it was time for a change.

Mark Stoops will soon take over the reins of the Kentucky football program.

Tuesday's news created plenty of buzz here in the Big Blue Nation.

Fans hope Stoops can turnaround a program that has struggled in the SEC.

This is Stoops' first Head Coaching job but some fans here at home believe he will still be the perfect fit.

They hope the new hire provides a new beginning for the loyal fans, the program and the players.

On Sunday, a news conference is expected to be held in Lexington to introduce Coach Mark Stoops to Kentucky.
