It's now being reported by multiple outlets that Liam Coen will become the next Offensive Coordinator at the University of Kentucky.
After becoming the Rhode Island Gatorade Player of the Year at La Salle Academy in 2003, he went on to be the starting quarterback at UMass for four straight years.
After his playing career ended, he worked with the Cleveland Browns as their quarterbacks coach in 2010 as well as 2012 to 2013. He spent 2011 with Rhode Island as their pass game coordinator & quarterbacks coach. He then moved on to his alma mater UMass in 2014 as their pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was then hired by Maine as their offensive coordinator in 2016. By 2018, he had worked his way into an NFL position as the assistant wide receivers coach for the Rams, and just two seasons later the Los Angeles Rams moved him to the assistant quarterbacks coach. He's now found himself moving across the country for his new job in Lexington, bringing him back to college football.
Mark Stoops believes he can come in and open up the offense as they plan to build their program around Beau Allen.
A great hire that many believe has a high ceiling in potential, and we'll surely see that in the next few seasons as he helps this program keep moving up.
