LEXINGTON — Kentucky Football has found its new offensive coordinator, according to a report from Cats Illustrated.

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.

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.
