LEXINGTON, Ky. (ESPN/KSR) – According to multiple media reports, Matt House will leave the Kentucky Wildcats to head to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Defensive Coordinator House has decided to make the leap to the NFL after a second pass from Kansas City, Kentucky Sports Radio reports.
ESPN broke the story Friday, followed by a report that he would stay at Kentucky.
There was much back and forth over a contract buyout, but from all media reports, it appears House is on the way out.
So regarding Matt House, who was expected to be the Chiefs’ new LB coach:
I’m told UK decided not to let him out of his deal…but they only did that AFTER they’d agreed to negotiate the buyout. Tough break for House, who wanted to join the Chiefs, and KC.
