According to Jon Hale of the Louisville Courier-Journal, University of Kentucky defensive backs coach Steven Clinksale will return next season. Coach Clinksale’s deal was set to expire in June, but he will be extended. Clinksale’s biggest contributions came on the recruiting trail, where he helped get Marquan McCall and Deandre Square from the state of Michigan. McCall was the #1 overall player in the state of Michigan, turning down offers from Michigan, Michigan State and other BIG-10 teams. Square is a safety/linebacker hybrid who will likely see time at nickel with the departure of Kendall Randolph.
