LEXINGTON — Kentucky Football has found its new offensive coordinator, according to a report from Cats Illustrated.
Justin Rowland, publisher of Cats Illustrated and football recruiting expert for Rivals.com, reported the pending hire Wednesday afternoon.
According to the report, Gran, who is currently the offensive coordinator at Cincinnati, has already signed the new deal with the Wildcats and could bring the Bearcats’ passing coordinator / quarterbacks coach, Darin Hinshaw, with him to Lexington.
Darin Hinshaw likely to make the move to UK along with Gran. Not immediately clear whether Gran will coach WR's or RB's, but likely one.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) December 28, 2015
The potential Gran hire would be the latest of a flurry of staff changes Kentucy head coach Mark Stoops has made in the early weeks of the offseason.
Shannon Dawson, UK’s former offensive coordinator, announced he would be leaving the program earlier this month after spending just one season in Lexington. Wide receivers coach Tommy Mainord was also released a few days later.
