Matt House sticking with UK | A Sea of Blue

On Friday, it seemed highly likely that Matt House would leave the Kentucky Wildcats to join the Chiefs in the NFL ranks. However, the winds are starting to blow back in Kentucky’s favor. Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio is reporting that it is now likely that House will remain at Kentucky as the defensive coordinator.

Kentucky screwed everybody, apparently. We must now hate them now

Patriots lose defensive line coach Brendan Daly to Kansas City Chiefs | Masslive

The Patriots have lost defensive line coach Brendan Daly, according to a report from Jim McBride of the Boston Globe. Daly will reportedly take a new position with the Kansas City Chiefs and reunite with former boss Steve Spagunolo. Spagnuolo recently became the Chiefs’ new defensive coordinator, 10 years after hiring Daly to be his defensive line coach upon taking over the St. Louis Rams in 2009

Projecting the top-10 most expensive free agents in 2019 | Pro Football Focus

After earning overall grades under 64.0 in each of the first four seasons of his NFL career, Kansas City Chiefs’ Dee Ford turned in a career-high 87.7 overall grade in 2018. He also improved his career-high pass-rush grade from 65.9 (2016) to 91.1 (2018).

Kansas City Chiefs have biggest Super Bowl window in NFL | Arrowhead Addict

The NFL.com columnist recently listed the teams with the biggest Super Bowl window in the National Football League, and Schein believes the Chiefs have it best right now for obvious reasons (that all start with Patrick Mahomes). Not only do the Chiefs have one of the best quarterbacks in the game (if not thebest) in Mahomes, a winner of the NFL’s MVP award at the age of 23, but they have him in the middle of his rookie deal. They’re paying pennies on the dollar for elite production at the single most important position in the game. It’s a general manager’s dream come true.

Why the Kansas City Chiefs should draft a quarterback soon | Arrowhead Addict

Ron Wolf, former general manager of the Green Bay Packers, was famous for wanting to pick a new quarterback every single year in the draft. You simply never know what you can uncover or what you will need at the central position in the game. Bill Belichick has embodied this same idea by drafting a new young quarterback every few seasons to sit behind Tom Brady. While Brady is the starter, Belichick is clearly not content to rely on Brady to stay healthy. He’s sunk several early round picks into players like Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett, allowing the team to feel good about any potential injury to Brady and hold valuable trade assets on the bench.

Chiefs mock draft roundup: Post-Super Bowl edition | 247 Sports

Mock draft season is in full swing now that the Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror, and this week we’ve got an interesting collection of different mock draft results for the Kansas City Chiefs. Across the board, draft analysts are projecting the Chiefs to go for defense in Round 1, but there’s a wide variety of ways they’re going about doing it. Two analysts have the Chiefs trading up in Round 1 to grab a cornerback of choice. Those who have the Chiefs staying put at 29th overall have them looking mostly for help at corner or safety with an occasional pick on the defensive line or linebacker.

With some KC Chiefs expertise, ‘soup kitchen’ becomes healthful restaurant experience | Kansas City Star

Making a lot of those decisions is Dwight Tiller, who is known at One City Café as “Chef D.” He was hired to produce nutritious meals Monday through Friday for 140 to 160 people. His former job: line cook at Aramark feeding Kansas City Chiefs players and coaches at their practice facility.

Noticed that. So, either they somehow already know Daly is going to be assistant DC, or they just don’t want to say he left their team for a lateral promotion.

Or “new position” could just be poor wording for “new job with another team,” and they have no idea what his job title will be.

Contracts are a two way street.

Having said that, it will definitely impact UK’s next coaching hires. Just as USC quickly discovered with KK

He still had a year. They agreed to a buyout and then like a bunch of douches they completely reneged. I hope there is a LOT of consequences for this. I hope House tanks on them. I hope NFL teams refuse to draft Kentucky players. I hope that Kentucky has huge problems finding future coaches.

People only think like that on message boards… that is, in hypotheticals, when they don’t have to actually carry out the actions.

I guess there are a few people who’d screw over college players for petty revenge against a Stoops, but….those are pretty terrible people. If House is one of those, then I’ll be glad he didn’t come to KC.

So it was a renege of a renege? Lol. I’m actually in favor of the coach in this situation. The Times I hate are when a coach causes trouble and then decides to leave and let the school take the punishment.

Yeah. Sounds like they are lying through their teeth about what they really did but the truth is going to get out. I’m certain that college coaches are fully aware of what really happened. It’s not going to look good for Kentucky.

Kentucky is not that bad. There are good and bad parts like anywhere. Out in the boonies is gorgeous, especially in the SE towards the Smokey Mountains. I’m not happy with their handling of the House situation, but this us like the first time their football program has ever been even close to relevant. I kinda understand the reluctance to let any of the winning pieces go away, coachwise.
