Remember that “awesome story” Matt teased on this morning’s show? KSR is hearing that Louisville wide receivers coach Lamar Thomas is leaving the 'Ville to become the new wide receivers coach at Kentucky.
Thomas has been with the Cardinals since 2014, before which he was the wide receivers coach under Bobby Petrino at Western Kentucky. He was one of the all-time great wide receivers at Miami before playing eight seasons in the NFL, three with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and five with the Miami Dolphins.
Thomas has a great reputation as a recruiter, recently bringing in four-star wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick. Some of his all-time commitments include dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson, who attended Boynton Beach Community High School, where Thomas coached from 2008-2010.
This is a huge, huge coup by Mark Stoops and staff, only a day and a half away from Signing Day.
