Ed Reed turned down an offer from Kentucky to stay with the Buffalo Bills

Ed Reed turned down a coaching opportunity with the Kentucky Wildcats.

Ed Reed went from making turkey nachos to eventually accepting a job with the Buffalo Bills as assistant defensive backs coach. Now Reed is turning down coaching opportunities from the college ranks.

The Courier-Journal reported that Reed was approached by Kentucky Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops about joining his staff as the team's defensive backs coach. Kentucky released lost defensive backs coach, Derrick Ansley, to Alabama. 

"A source told The Courier-Journal Monday that Stoops did reach out to Reed, but the former Super Bowl champion said he was not currently interested in leaving the Bills for the college ranks."

Reed, a future Hall of Famer, will bring his knowledge of Rex Ryan's defense to Buffalo and players will get to learn from one of the greatest safeties to ever play the game. Although his job with the Bills in 2016 will be his first coaching opportunity, it's not a surprise to see another coaching staff already reach out to Reed.
