One of Kentucky’s top assistant coaches isn’t leaving anytime soon.

According to Nick Roush of Kentucky Sports Radio, the Wildcats have agreed to an extension with defensive coordinator Brad White. Details of White’s new contract have not yet been reported.

White’s contract was set to expire after the 2020 season, when he was reportedly going to make $650,000. He will now receive a raise for next season, per Roush, after he made $625,000 in 2019.

Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops hired White to serve as outside linebackers coach prior to the 2018 season. Then, before the 2019 season, White was promoted to defensive coordinator. He had previously spent six seasons as an assistant with the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts from 2012-17.

White also served as the inside linebackers coach at Air Force from 2010-11.

Although the Wildcats lost some key defensive starters from 2018, most notably defensive end Josh Allen, they still had a solid showing this season. Kentucky ranked 21st in the country with 324.3 total yards allowed per game and fourth in passing defense with 172.7 yards allowed per game.

Now, White will have the opportunity to continue to work with the Wildcats’ defensive players and help them continue to improve moving into the future.
