Next Game

  • Tennessee Volunteers - January 24, 2017 - 9:00 PM EST - Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, Tenn. - ESPN

Welcome to the UK family, Coach Stoops!

I want to congratulate and welcome Mark Stoops to the UK family. The Big Blue Nation is excited to have him.

I’m a big fan of the Stoops family. I spent some time at Oklahoma with his brother Bob and met Mike when I was at Memphis and we played at Arizona. I have not had a chance to personally meet Mark but I’ve heard nothing but great things.

Mark and I have spoken over the phone a few times and he knows that the full force of the basketball program will be behind him.
