Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops announced the hire of new defensive back coach Steve Clinkscale on Tuesday. Per

“I am very impressed with Coach Clinkscale’s knowledge and the way he handles himself with players,” said Stoops, who has an extensive history as a defensive backs coach. “He is well-seasoned in terms of experience. Coaches I greatly respect – Coach (Eddie) Gran and Coach (Darin) Hinshaw – who worked with him in Cincinnati speak very highly of him.”
Clinkscale was the secondary coach at Cincinnati over the past three seasons and also served as co-defensive coordinator in 2015.

He will replace Derrick Ansley who left after three season at Kentucky to accept a defensive backs coaching job at Alabama.
