Former UK defensive end Jeremy Jarmon has been added to the Kentucky staff as assistant director of player personnel, UK Coach Joker Phillips said Wednesday morning.
He replaces Tommy Cook, who left to take a position at Kent State less than a month ago.
"It's really huge to have a guy like Jeremy around, who's been a part of our program understands how we do things and also he's just a couple months removed from being an NFL player," he said. "It's huge as far as developing young players in our program."
While at UK, Jarmon played in 38 games with 31 starts. As a junior, he had 38 tackles, including 10 for loss as well as 4.5 sacks and six pass breakups.
His 17.5 career sacks is still third in UK history.
