The Big Blue Nation can officially stop holding their breath. Friday recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow announced he is returning to Kentucky despite a reportedly significant offer from Michigan State.
To celebrate the occasion, Marrow and long time friend and Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops enjoyed a celebratory night out.

While Marrow opted to return to Lexington Justin Rowland of Cats Illustrated reports, it wasn’t an easy decision for the ‘Big Dog.’
New Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker is a long time friend of Marrow and per some reports, the Spartans contract offer was north of a million dollars per year and would’ve made him one of the two highest paid assistant coaches without an offensive or defensive coordinator title in the nation.
While Michigan State had a lot to offer, Rowland reports Marrow’s decision to stay in Kentucky came after considering the fans, players he’s recruited, and of course, a big-time raise from UK.
Kentucky’s five-star recruiter is not going anywhere and the Big Blue Nation has reason to celebrate just like Stoops and Marrow did tonight.
