Former UK quarterback Andre' Woodson will spend more time with the offensive line this season.
Former University of Kentucky quarterback Andre' Woodson is making a position change. At the Governor's Cup luncheon Thursday, Woodson, a graduate assistant coach, told me that he plans to spend more time with the offensive linemen and offensive line coach Mike Summers.
Woodson is one of the finest quarterbacks in UK history, the guy who led the Wildcats to their unforgettable upset victory over top-ranked Louisiana State, the eventual national champion, 43-37, in triple overtime during the 2007 season.
Why the move to spending more time with the offensive line?
Woodson said that his career coaching goal is to become an offensive coordinator. Not a head coach. He wants to be an offensive coordinator, the guy who builds the game plan.
He knows the quarterback, running back and receiving positions. He wants to understand blocking and how to attack the defensive line.
"The offensive line is a different world," Woodson said. "It's a different realm. I just want to learn from the best. That's coach Summers. He's just amazing."
