Kentucky coach Mark Stoops is back to .500 in his coaching career after a 45-10 season-opening victory vs. ULM at Kroger Field Saturday afternoon.

The win improved Stoops’ career coaching record to 50-50, an impressive feat after the rough start his first four seasons in Lexington.

Stoops owned a record of 12-26 through the first 38 games of his career. After three consecutive losing season’s to begin his UK tenure (2-10, 5-7, 5-7), Stoops has pieced together winning seasons in four of the last five years, including a 10-3 campaign in 2018.

In his nine seasons on the sidelines at Kentucky, Stoops has never owned a winning record overall.

That could change next Saturday night when Missouri travels to Lexington for the SEC opener for both teams.
