2014 proving to be a big off-season for UK Hoops coach Matthew Mitchell

Uncharacteristic of most off-seasons, UK Hoops has been a whirlwind of news lately. Last week, Matthew Mitchell pledged $1-million to the UK Athletics Department over the next 10 years, and he’s also been doing a little house cleaning.
The philanthropic head coach has overhauled his entire coaching staff from last season after a 26-9 record and a disappointing loss to Baylor in the Sweet Sixteen.
Already, Mitchell has begun the rebuilding process. Christian Stefanopoulos was named assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. Adeniyi Amadou, a former assistant coach at Dayton, was also added to the staff. There will no doubt be a number of new faces lining the sidelines of Memorial Coliseum come fall.
KSTV’s Thomas Beisner and Mark Krebs discuss Mitchell’s moves and the difficulties he will face heading into summer.
