The off season has officially began for the Kentucky Wildcats after their 20-17 win over Iowa in the VRBO Citrus Bowl and Mitch Barnhart is already making sure that the "Big Dog" stays put here in Lexington.
There have been talks of schools showing interest in the recruiting guru and who could blame them? Marrow has taken Kentucky Football recruiting to a level that most of us, if not all of us, have never seen before.
It was reported by KSR's Matt Jones that Vince Marrow and UK have come to an agreement to a new, three-year contract extension that will pocket the associate Head Coach a cool $1,000,000 a year.
UK knows how important Marrow is to the success of their program and they are acting diligent in trying to make sure he is here for many years to come. With the Class of 2022 top 15 recruiting class coming in, it would be a huge loss to our program if Marrow did ever decide to leave Lexington, however, if Kentucky wants to have a big name program then they will have to get used to other schools attempting to steal our coaching staff. Marrow’s last contract extension came back in 2020, which raised his pay to a whopping $900,000 a year, making him one of the highest paid non-coordinators in FBS. This came after a strong push from Michigan State and Mel Tucker to get Marrow to East Lansing during that off season.
It appears he has now earned himself again, another big time raise.
