LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — It appears that UK offensive coordinator Liam Coen is leaving Kentucky after just one season, and he's heading back to the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.
Albert Breer was the first to report that the Rams are hiring Coen to be the offensive coordinator. He was the assistant quarterbacks coach before coming to Kentucky.
