Liam Coen is making one thing known: his time with Kentucky football won't be long

The Kentucky football program has continued to claim that everyone is on the same page within the coaching staff. However, with each new report on Liam Coen taking interviews elsewhere, is there a reason for concern for the Big Blue Nation? If anything, the latest reports on Coen should tell fans one thing: the current offensive coordinator isn't long for his tenure in Lexington.

News broke yesterday that Coen would be interviewing for the open offensive coordinator position with the reigning NFC South champion, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coen has never made it a secret that his intentions are to be in the NFL, as he left Kentucky after one season to join the Los Angeles Rams in the 2022-23 season. However, Coen returned after one year in Los Angeles, and it felt that this stint would last a little longer, or so we thought.

It wasn't a banner year for the Kentucky offense under Coen this past season. The Wildcats ranked 10th in overall offense in the SEC. There's a lot that can be dissected in that conversation, as many believed that head coach Mark Stoops hadn't allowed Coen to take complete control of the offense. However, when asked about that, Stoops claims that he and Coen are on the same page.

Whatever the case may be, losing Coen before summer would be a crucial blow to this program. Georgia quarterback transfer Brock Vandagriff has already gotten the BBN excited about what this offense can be next season. A Coen exit could also mean that Vandagriff will be looking for greener pastures as well. The only thing the program and the fanbase can do now is wait. Which is frustrating, given how the offense performed last season. One can only hope that all of this drama won't bleed over to the sidelines this fall.
