James Coley was offered by Kentucky's Mark Stoops today to be their next offensive coordinator, multiple sources (including AllWildcats' Patrick Loney) have said.
Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops worked with Coley on Florida State's staff before they each left to head to different places. Many believed Coley would be a top candidate when Stoops decided to hire Neal Brown from Texas Tech following the 2012 season.
Brown spent two seasons at Kentucky before being named the new head coach at Troy University today.
Coley, 41, has spent the previous two seasons as Miami's offensive coordinator. Prior to being hired to replace Jedd Fisch following the 2012 season, Coley spent five seasons working under Jimbo Fisher. He also spent time working on the FIU coaching staff and previously worked as an offensive assistant for the Miami Dolphins.
The Hurricanes are currently averaging 29.9 points and 431 yards per game under Coley this season. They rank 48th nationally in total yards and will have to replace Phillip Dorsett, Clive Walford, Jonathan Feliciano, and Shane McDermott following the season. Duke Johnson and Ereck Flowers will likely join that list soon as well.
