Dean Hood, the assistant head coach at Charlotte, has declined an offer to coach at Kentucky.

UK coach Mark Stoops met with Hood last week in an effort to fill a vacancy on the Wildcats’ staff. Linebackers coach and special teams coordinator Andy Buh left UK to become the defensive coordinator at Maryland.

Hood previously was head coach at Eastern Kentucky for eight seasons. Before coming to EKU, Hood was the defensive coordinator at Wake Forest.
