Do not underestimate value of running backs coach John Settle


There’s been a lot of excitement for Kentucky football about the addition of offensive coordinator Liam Coen, a former assistant coach with the Los Angeles Rams. Kentucky defensive line coach Anwar Stewart says Coen is a “great guy with a lot of passion and excitement” he enjoys being around.
