5 for Sunday: Welcome Home, Neal Brown

Good morning Big Blue Nation!

Former Cat and current New Orleans Hornets Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is expected to come back soon. Jim Eichenhofer reports:
Prior to Saturday’s game in Miami, general manager Dell Demps said Davis is moving closer to getting back on the court. “He looked pretty good,” Demps said of Davis’ Saturday workout. “He went through a series of tests this week, and he passed all of them. We’re hoping to have him back next week. I think he has one more test to pass, but just watching him in pregame today was very encouraging.”

On Saturday, while the Cats were taking on Portland, the news broke that Cincinnati hired Texas Tech Red Raiders coach Tommy Tuberville to replace Butch Jones. With Tuberville on the way out of Texas Tech, there’s a good chance that Neal Brown fills the offensive coordinator position on Mark Stoops’ staff at Kentucky. Last night, Joe Adams of Ky Cat Stats reported that Brown “in principle agreed to take over as the Offensive Coordinator job at Kentucky.” Adams informs us that the agreement let him interview for the head coaching jobs at Southern Mississippi and Louisiana Tech. Brown will be introduced at some point in the next week.

John Clay is of the same belief that Brown will be the next offensive coordinator at Kentucky. Clay writes that it could be as early as Monday when we hear something on the job.

Our own Darren Durham shared his own thoughts last night about the latest movement with regards to the assistant coaching staff.

While the university has not announced anything yet, Northwestern State play by play voice Patrick Netherton tweeted what has been assumed for a few weeks now.
