Ever wonder what new Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops might do when he gets a break from football. So did I, so I recently asked him. Here’s what he said.
“I like to play – I like to get out and play a little golf when I get time. Even though I say that, I’ve played about four times in the last four years. I’m trying to get out more now,” said Stoops. “Now that they’ve tied me into the office, I can’t spring recruit like I used to, now I’m trying to get out and trying to get the golf swing back a little bit. I may try to get out here later this afternoon and hook up with Tim Couch and play a round.
“I’m trying to get out and do that, but it’s so consuming between my family demands because of my young children. It’s really football and then the family. What I like to do now is when I get time to get home at a decent hour is go play some baseball and go play with my kids in the backyard. He’s playing Tee ball right now so I take him to Tee ball practice when I can, take him to Tee Ball games, and just spend some time with him in our backyard playing and spending time with the kids.”
