So how does Brooke Brown like being the wife of a Kentucky coach?
“I love getting to see Neal live out his dream and coaching is truly in his DNA, so I know he wouldn’t be happy doing anything else,” she said. “We’ve been very blessed every stop we’ve made on this coaching journey, so even when the moving is hard and sometimes the season can be stressful, I wouldn’t trade the people we’ve met along the way. The Stoops have gone out of their way to create a family atmosphere here and I’m excited about adding this staff to our ‘football family.’
“I’m definitely excited and always anxious at the start of a new season. I try to have realistic expectations and prepare myself for the positives and the negatives that may come. I’ve been around sports my whole life since my Dad was a coach, so I’m not naive to the ebbs and flows of a season and I have pretty thick skin.
“It’s going to be extra special this year getting to spend the season at my alma mater, which is something I never let myself think might actually happen. Neal and I feel so grateful to coach Stoops for giving us this opportunity and the support from the Commonwealth has been appreciated and humbling.”
Neal Brown says the players have impressed him with their “hunger” to win also.
“They have not had the success they wanted. They are good kids and are working really hard,” Neal Brown said. “Kids are kids for the most part. Kids want to win. Any time you go to a place that has been down a couple of years and not had the success they wanted, those kids are eager to succeed. It’s a little easier for them to buy in when the place has had down times rather than success. But these kids really want to win.”
