Former Nebraska graduate assistant Vince Marrow will join Kentucky's staff as tight ends coach, the school announced on Thursday.
Marrow spent two seasons with the Cornhuskers. He played tight end in the NFL, NFL Europe and XFL from 1992-2001. Marrow attended Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio, playing under Ron Stoops Sr.
"I've known Mark Stoops for a lot of years and this is a great opportunity to come here and work with him," Marrow said in a UK press release. "I'm excited to be here and looking forward to the new era of Kentucky football.
He was a tight ends coach for the Berlin Thunder and Rhine Fire of the NFL Europe in 2006 and 2007, respectively. He spent a year as tight ends coach at Toledo in 2008 before becoming head coach at Springfield Local (Ohio) High School in 2009. He then moved on to the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL in 2010.
Marrow attended Cardinal Mooney at the same time as UK head coach Mark Stoops and Florida Atlantic coach Carl Pelini.
"I'm very excited that Coach Marrow has joined our staff," Stoops said. "His diverse experiences as a coach and NFL player will be invaluable to our players and our program. He also is a great recruiter, especially with his outstanding connections in Ohio."
Marrow was tied to five commitments for Nebraska in the class of 2013 from Ohio, including two from Cardinal Mooney.
Marrow's son, Mike, is a fullback for the Cornhuskers.
