HOOVER, Ala. — Jeremy Jarmon’s NFL career is over, but the former University of Kentucky defensive lineman has a new career at UK.
Coach Joker Phillips announced here Wednesday at the Southeastern Conference Football Media Days that Jarmon is the new assistant director of football operations at Kentucky. The job came open when former UK receiver Tommy Cook left to take a job at Kent State.
“You always have guys on your list if somebody leaves,” said Phillips.
Jarmon’s UK career was cut short when he was banned by the NCAA from playing because of a failed drug test due to an over the counter supplement he bought and took. Jarmon played wih the Washington Redskins before signing with Denver. He recently decided to end his NFL career.
“This is big for our program,” Phillips said. “It’s huge to get a young man like Jeremy Jarmon around our program. It’s huge to have him part of the program. He understands how we do things and he’s just a couple of months removed from being a NFL player.”
