Coen was an assistant with the Rams from 2018-2020. He left to become Kentucky’s offensive coordinator in 2021, but returned to the Rams as offensive coordinator a year later after Kevin O’Connell became head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.
Kentucky went through a disappointing 7-5 season a year after going 10-3 with Coen on staff. They were desperate to get him back and made a big push to get him. They were able to get their man back.
