Joe Moorhead has the most coaching experience of anyone on this list.
He is currently the head coach at Akron, but after consecutive 2-10 seasons, Morehead may consider moving to a Power Five school as a coordinator.
While his previous experiences as a head coach have been a mixed bag, his stints at Penn State and Oregon produced a great offense.
Moorhead has helped put several players into the NFL and could be a great addition to Stoops and the Wildcats.
Tommy Rees was a popular name last season, taking over the offensive coordinator job at Alabama. After a year in which Jalen Milroe improved as the season went on, Rees was replaced when Nick Saban retired and Kalen Deboer took over, bringing his own coordinator with him. Rees has reportedly accepted the job as tight ends coach for the Cleveland Browns, but the team has not yet announced it.
Rees also worked with new Wildcats offensive line coach Eric Wolford at Alabama last season. Rees is a big name that could help Brock Vandagriff’s development this season.
Tyson Helton has been the head coach of the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers for the past five seasons. Helton has no connection to Stoops, but several Group of Five head coaches left the team to serve as Power Five coordinators. The Hilltopper offense has been one of the top flight offenses in the country over the past three years under Helton.
He could step in and possibly bring the passing game back to the levels seen when Coen was there with Will Levis. James Coley just took a job as wide receivers coach at South Carolina, but he might opt out if Kentucky comes calling. an offensive coordinator job.
Coley has connections to the Stoops. He was the offensive coordinator at Florida State, while Stoops was the defensive coordinator there.
Coley also has some experience as a coordinator outside of the state of Florida. He was an offensive coordinator for Miami, Georgia and Texas A&M. In addition to his experience, he is also a proven recruiter and has ties to the Florida area that could be important for Kentucky recruiting.
