The Kentucky football program has already given fans a rollercoaster of emotions in the young offseason. With rumors of head coach Mark Stoops leaving for Texas A&M, fans could exhale after Stoops and the university announced that the winningest coach in program history was staying in Lexington. Now, a new rumor is quickly spreading smoke with its fire. The Cats could be down an offensive coordinator in the coming days.

Yes, Liam Coen could be making his second exit from Lexington after finishing his second season as offensive coordinator with the Wildcats. After the 2021-22 season, Coen dashed from Lexington for the bright lights of Los Angeles to take the same position with the Rams. However, things didn't go according to plan with the Rams, which brought Coen back to Kentucky for the 2023-24 year.

Jonathan Jones of NFL on CBS first reported that Coen would be interviewing for the open OC position with the Chicago Bears. Coen has been one of the more popular names around the college ranks and the NFL since his first tenure with the Cats. However, losing Coen this off-season could be brutal for the Kentucky program.

The Wildcats welcomed 5-star Georgia transfer Brock Vandagriff this offseason. But losing his offensive coordinator could see the former Bulldog attempt to see if the grass is greener elsewhere. Only time will tell where Coen will be next Fall. For Kentucky fans, it seems imperative that Coen decides to stay on the sidelines at Kroger Field.

What are your thoughts on Coen's potential second departure from Kentucky?
