Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops has been contacted by LSU about the Tigers head coaching vacancy, according to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio.

Jones broke the news during the second hour of Kentucky Sports Radio Friday morning.

“Mark Stoops has been contacted via a third party for the LSU job,” Jones reported. “I think there are, and I speak about this not with complete knowledge, but some knowledge, there are probably seven jobs or less that I think Mark Stoops would seriously consider leaving here for. I think LSU is one of those seven.”

Jones also mentioned that Alabama offensive coordinator and former Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is a possible target for the position.

“I got a second message that says there is at least one other person in the fold, and the AD might even like that person more. That person is Bill O’Brien,” Jones said. “So (Stoops) may not even get offered the job. If LSU were to decide Stoops was their guy, it will be worth sweating about.”
