LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Former offensive coordinator Eddie Gran is returning to the UK coach staff, the school announced on Friday.

Gran returns as a special assistant to head coach Mark Stoops, in an off-the-field role.

“I’m grateful to have somebody with the experience of Eddie Gran rejoining our program in a different capacity,” Stoops said. “Eddie has a wealth of experience in many different areas. He will be an asset to me and our program.”

Gran was the Wildcats’ assistant head coach of the offense, offensive coordinator and running backs coach from 2016-2020.

“Why would I come back? It’s simple. I love Kentucky. I love working with Coach Stoops and I want to be a positive role model in these young men’s lives,” Gran said. “I am excited to have the opportunity to return to this program and help any way I can. This place is special and it’s where I want to work and finish out my career.”
