    Kentucky is hiring a Big 12 assistant for its offensive coordinator position.

    According to multiple reports, the school is set to hire West Virginia's Shannon Dawson. Fox Sports first reported the news.

    From the Louisville Courier-Journal:

    An official announcement cannot be made until Friday, per state hiring regulations, but Dawson will carry on the "Air Raid" offense installed the last two seasons by Neal Brown, who left UK after this season to become head coach at Troy. The 37-year-old Dawson worked under former Cats coach Hal Mumme, the godfather of that pass-happy spread attack, at both Southeastern Louisiana in 2003-04 and New Mexico State in 2005

  • Tennessee lands former Alabama RB Alvin Kamara

    Former Alabama running back Alvin Kamara has landed at Tennessee.

    The Vols announced they had signed Kamara, a former four-star prospect, out of Hutchinson (Kansas) Community College.

    Kamara spent the 2013 season at Alabama, but never saw the field. He was suspended twice and left home from the Sugar Bowl because of an unspecified disciplinary reason. Kamara announced via Twitter last January that he was leaving the Alabama program, but maintained that it was not because of the behavioral issues that landed him in hot water with Saban and his staff.

    Kamara rushed for 1,211 yards and 18 touchdowns in nine games with Hutchinson this season. Hutchinson is the same junior college that produced former Tennessee star receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.
