SPECIAL PRESENTATION Mark Stoops Head Coach, University of Kentucky Football Mark Stoops is in the middle of his fifth year as the University of Kentucky head football coach. In his first season, Coach Stoops inherited a program that came off a 2-10 season, averaging 22.1 points per loss. It took just four seasons to return the program to bowl eligibility and restore a winning culture. In addition to shaping the Wildcats’ performance on the field, Stoops has been instrumental in shaping the program off the field. Coach Stoops assisted in planning and fundraising for the $125 million renovation of Kroger Field, as well as the new $45 million football complex. These renovations and the winning culture Coach Stoops brought with him to Lexington have led to multiple top-25 recruiting classes and optimism for the future of this program. Coach Stoops grew up surrounded by a football family and is native of Youngstown, Ohio, one of the nation’s biggest football towns. After high school, he went on to play for Hall of Fame coach Hayden Fry at the University of Iowa, playing in four bowl games and winning 25 games in three years. After graduation, Coach Stoops spent two seasons as a graduate assistant coach under Coach Fry. After the ’91 season, he spent four years coaching high school football before entering the collegiate ranks. Coach Stoops made stops at several major programs including Iowa, USF, Wyoming, Houston, Arizona, Miami and Florida State. Fast forward to 2017, and Coach Mark Stoops is in his 28th season of coaching. He has compiled a 4-1 career BCS bowl record, won a BCS National Championship, and has developed 11 NFL 1st round draft picks. 10
