01/11/2018 07:22 PM

The University of Kentucky announced today that they will not renew the contract of assistant coach Lamar Thomas.

Thomas served as the wide receivers coach the last two seasons at UK.

“I appreciate the contributions Lamar made to our program during the last two years,” Head Coach Mark Stoops said in a press release. “We wish him the best in the future.”

UK has two open coaching positions now, one to replace Thomas, along with the additional tenth full-time assistant coach that is now allowed under NCAA rules.
