Mark and Chantel Stoops release statement announcing divorce
The Kentucky season recently came to an end with an exciting 23-21 victory over NC State in the Gator Bowl.
Now, entering the offseason, there’s some difficult news to report out of Lexington.
Per a release, coach Mark Stoops and his wife, Chantel, are getting a divorce. Here’s what the statement said:
“It is very difficult to make an announcement about something that is so personal for our family, however, after careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the statement read. “We realize that we are well-known within the community and feel we need to acknowledge this publicly. We have a deep care and respect for each other and that will continue as our family moves forward. Please be respectful of our family’s privacy during this time.”
Stoops has been at Kentucky since 2013. He has a 49-50 overall record.
